The arches are blue
The ally's are blue
The steps are blue
The doors are blue
🇬🇧 Why is so many things in Chefchaouen or (Chaouen) blue? Centuries ago it was a fortress for Spanish exiles. Most of these exiles were Jewish who wanted to escape the Spanish Inquisition. When the Jews landed here,they brought with them the tradition of painting things blue to reflect the sky and the power of God. While many of the Jews already moved on, the tradition lives on ❤️

🇬🇧 Dinner at our hotel Chefchaouen The beautiful gardens helped to let you forget about the heat. 🇿🇦Wat 'n plesier om in hierdie skadureike tuine te eet en weg te kruip van die vreeslike hitte
🇬🇧 Arrive at Dar Echchaouen in Chefchaouen. What a beautiful place, relaxed atmosphere and helpful friendly people. 🇿🇦 Die Dar Echchaouen is 'n groot verrassing. Pragtige hotel, vriendelike hulpvaardige mense. Die plek doen nie afbreek aan die blou stad nie
🇬🇧Rabat to Chefchaouen Sence from the car window 🇿🇦 Rabat na Chefchaouen. Die landskap uit die voertuig. Indrukwekkend

HASSAN II Mosque
🇿🇦 A Early misty visit to the Hassan II Mosque The Hassan II Mosque or Grande Mosquée Hassan II (Arabic: مسجد الحسن الثاني‎‎; colloquially the "Casablanca Hajj")[2] is a mosque in Casablanca, Morocco. It is the largest mosque in Morocco and the 13th largest in the world. Its minaret is the world's tallest at 210 metres (689 ft).[3][4] Completed in 1993, it was designed by Michel Pinseau and built by Bouygues. The minaret is 60 stories high topped by a laser, the light from which is directed towards Mecca.[5] The mosque stands on a promontory looking out to the Atlantic Ocean, worshippers can pray over the sea but there is no glass floor looking into the sea. The walls are of hand-crafted marble and the roof is retractable. A maximum of 105,000 worshippers can gather together for prayer: 25,000 inside the mosque hall and another 80,000 on the mosque's outside grounds.[4] 🇿🇦'n Onbeplande besoek. Ons drywer / gids maak dit sy taak om ons by die Hassan II moskee af te laai.
🇬🇧Getting ready. The best way to transport a beer. 😁😁 🇿🇦 Die beste manier om bier te verpak 😆

🇬🇧 Our first stroll thru the streets of Casablanca For us this is a very strange city. Typical Africa city. Beautiful buildings from a era long gone by, now in a state of neglect and then out of the blue a well kept place. A modern city train also don't fit in the rest of the surroundings 🇿🇦 Aanvanklik 'n snaakse stad. Met tyd het ons agter gekom dat ons eintlik in die ou, historiese deel van die stad bly en dat daar rondom die ou stad 'n moderne stad met ses miljoen inwoners is. Voorwaar 'n stad wat met die res van die wêreld vergelyk.
🇬🇧 Welcome to Casablanca The toughest border control I have ever encountered. This guys do a thorough job 🇿🇦 Morocco het die strengste grensbeheer wat ek nog teëgekom het. Die laaste ding wat hulle doen nadat jy jou bagasie gekry het is om weer jou bagasie te "scan" 😲
🇬🇧We had a lovely aeroplane dinner. Thanks Iberia 👏👍 🇿🇦 Iberia verbaas my. Het voorwaar goeie diens 👏
🇬🇧Flight to Casablanca Two things that astounded me 1 The tremendous amount of wind turbines. Hundreds upon hundreds. 2 The weat fields of Morocco 😲 Miles upon miles 🇿🇦 Ons vlieg oor 'n smal deeltjie van die middelaarskap see, skielik is die Atlas berge van Morocco onder ons. Ek probeer die aantal wind turbines tel maar, kom nie verder as 50 op een berglug. Hier is letterlik honderde van hulle. Die landskap onder ons verander na 'n lappieskombers van koringlande. Kilometres ver hou dit net aan. Toe ons land is daar nog steeds koringlande om ons. Ek het gedink dat Morocco 'n droë land vol sand is. My verbasing was groot!
🇬🇧We start our trip to Morocco with a delay. This is due to no show passengers (Baggage booked in but the passenger is no on the plane) 🇿🇦Sover het ons nog net met vertragings aan die begin van ons reise te doen gehad. Egter nie veel van 'n probleem - ONS IS MET VAKANSIE 😂
