Personal highlights

  1. Chefchaouen: founded as a small fortress and grown through multicultural immigrants from Spaininfo-icon
  2. The Blue City: either to keep the mosquitos away or to bring heaven down to earth by Jewish immigrants
  3. Place Outa el Hammam: big central square with a beautiful Kasbah and Mosque, where all the life plays
  4. Tourism: this city is a true marvel, already being overrun by tourists and filled with dorky souvenir shops
  5. Souvenir: instead of buying something, I guarded a shop while the innkeeper was praying in the Mosque
