the world's smartest travel social network
For around ten days recently I traveled through the country of Morocco. I started my trip in the fabled "blue city" Chefchaouen (population around 43,000), just inland from Tangier. It’s cool to get lost in the old medina (old town) - founded along with the city itself in the 15th century - so stunning I didn't mind wandering aimlessly through its cobalt labyrinth. This town is also a prodigious place to get your shopping done, with handicrafts not always available in the rest of the country - and with shop owners not as aggressive as you’ll find in the bigger cities.
