This morning, I woke up to the call of prayer, I heard it from my hotel room, reminded me of my time in Turkey, especially while in Istanbul.

The all blue town in Morocco is called Chefchaoeun. It is referred to as The Blue Pearl because is it a calming and hidden gem in the Rif mountain of the country.  Filled with local markets and restaurants, this town allowed me to get a feel of traditional Moroccan lifestyle. I enjoyed my days getting lost in the old quarters of the medina alleys and looked for awesome spots to photograph the different palettes of blue.  Although the medina is maze like, the town is easy to navigate, discover and explore.

Fun fact:the locals paint the town blue every year. Some believe is it used as mosquito repellent but others think it is to represent calmness.

Until next time,

  1. This is awesome. Blue is supposed to be a peaceful color, a calming color. I remembered that from school when I learned about colors. I love that the town painted it that color. Maybe they are very calm and happy people. I hope so. Thanks for sharing. What a beautiful place and as always you look beautiful. Until next time, Kathleen

    1. Thank you so much! Yes that’s true. I too learnt that in school. Even in business school, blue was always the best color to use when trying to sell something apparently. Yes it is a choice of the locals and they are loyal to their blue, hence why they repaint it yearly. They certainly did seem happy and calm since that was the overall vibe of the village. You’re welcome. Thank you for reading and thanks for the ongoing kind words. Until next time-more Moroccan posts to come-Stay tuned!

    1. Nice observation. I just checked the pics, maybe its done by hand so they can only reach so far. Just a guess. I too love blue. And the blue and white mix is nice. Same, I like the door too, probably why I photographed it and its look so steady lol!
