Wednesday: scenes from Morocco

Dinner. This was $5.

Chefchaouen: the blue

From Wikipedia: “Chefchaouen, or Chaouen, is a city in the Rif Mountains of northwest Morocco. It’s known for the striking, blue-washed buildings of its old town. Leather and weaving workshops line its steep cobbled lanes. In the shady main square of Place Outa el Hammam is the red-walled Kasbah, a 15th-century fortress and dungeon, and Chefchouen Ethnographic Museum. The octagonal minaret of the Great Mosque rises nearby.”

The paint’s pigment is as blue as the sky. This is from our riad.

From my camera:

I only bought three handwoven pillowcases on Wednesday.  And overheated.  And then sat at the riad by the pool for a few hours.

I am never coming back to the USA.
