Morocco's Beautiful Blue City Of Chefchaouen...

Chefchaouen is a small and charming city in north eastern Morocco near the Mediterranean Sea in the heart of the Rif Mountains.
The little city was painted blue by the Jewish refugees who lived there in the 1930's.
See more about it here, it's a tourists delight for many reasons, not all of them kosher...

Blogging is back to normal hopefully...

  1. What color was it before?

    1. For you Mr Sharkey, I'll have some of my people over there scrape some blue paint off and see what's under there...

  2. I just love that shade of blue, what a lovely colour to be surrounded by all the time in the place where you live. Glad you have got your pictures back!

  3. It must be simply pigment added to lime wash - gives a wonderfully cool & clean appearance. I read that originally people would have used a natural dye made of shellfish but I guess it's mixed up with synthetic modern pigment these days – still – wonderful to see it thanks!
