Chefcahaouen: A few photos
Today is my third day in Chefchaouen, but I’ve had a lot of work to do so I haven’t gotten to see much. I’m staying at Riad Baraka in the medina. The word ‘Medina’ refers to the ancient, historic part of the city. There’s a modern city outside the medina walls, but I always enjoy the character of the more historic areas, so I haven’t left. Cars can’t enter the narrow streets of the medina, and it feels like traveling back in time.
But medinas are mazes, built to confuse and entrap invaders. Those who know me know that I tend to get lost every three feet even in a normal city grid. That’s another reason I’ve only explored a small portion of the medina so far.
For now, i’m just going to share a few photos.
Tomorrow I will take the day off and go hiking in the Rif Mountains nearby, so I will have more to report!
