Chefchaouen was a beatnik little town in the mountains – a place where you could simply relax at a little café, drink mint tea and sit and read all day. Chefchaouen was known for two things…the color blue, and the Moroccan kif capital (pot…in English).
All of the buildings were painted various shades of blue, the doors were painted blue, the shutters were painted blue, some of the streets were even painted blue, the pots that held plants were painted blue – and if you sat long enough in a café, I think some old lady would have come around and painted you blue too!
As for the kif - I honestly know nothing about it…but was offered it many times!
Be sure to make a stop in this mellow, blue laid back town.
