Another day in Chefchaouen

August 12, 2019  •  8 Comments

Stepping out from our hotel to the street in the morning.

Again, we spent the day wandering the streets.  Everywhere we went  we saw gorgeous blue alleyways and blue-washed buildings.

This man was on his way to the central meeting square hoping to earn money from the tourists.

I thought that Chefchaouen was a perfect place to roam around  and take photos.  Most of the locals did not want to have their photos taken for both cultural and privacy reasons.  I'm sure they were tired of all of the tourists and their cameras.  

I always like looking at different doors in the various places I visit.  Of course the doors were also blue here.

Weatherwise we had a few more light showers but also some sunshine.  I have to say that it wasn't particularly warm here.

The Kasbah museum is a restored walled fortress in the heart of the Chefchaeon Medina.  We walked up the stairs of the old tower for some great views of the city.  Above shows a view of some of the rooftops.

A view of the city surrounded by mountains.

 

Just another beautiful street.

We paid this gentleman to take his photo.

I came across this cute  little boy.  I asked his mother if I could take his photo.  She is actually hiding behind the door while I took his picture.

Much to my surprise she also agreed to have her photo taken.  

Some colorful materials.

At least the cats had no issues with posing for us.

As I mentioned there were cats everywhere.

We came across a photographer taking engagement photos.  

Later on in the afternoon it started to rain again so we headed back to the hotel.   This was one of my last shots of the afternoon.    The next day we headed to El Jadida, stopping in Casablanca on the way.
