The Blue City of Chefchaouen

From Tarifa it was just a 35 minute ferry ride and about a three hour drive to get to Chefchaouen. Even through Spain and Morocco are just 14 kilometers apart it was culturally a totally different World. The truck speed was on average under 50km/h and we got to know each other well by sitting sideways the whole journey and Tom also did his first pee in a bottle on the way.
During the two nights we stayed in Chefchaouen we must have been asked over a hundred times of we wanted to buy hash. The bad side of this city is that it is the drug capital of Morocco and Moroccans are known for being pushy, but most of the time it felt like a relatively quiet and charming city. The city is known as the blue city and getting on top of nearby hill we could really see how half the city’s Medina (old city) was painted blue.
