    Beautiful SandiF - you and Marielle have the most amazing adventures...
    looks like someplace I would love to see.

    THe mister and I decided that once we leave this side of the world we are going to really see Europe now that the girls are big enough to appreciate holidays that don;t involve a pool and a beach.

    Thanks!


    Chefchaouen is a wonderful town in Morocco with its white-washed houses and the distinctive medina with its walls painted in various shades of blue. The story that I'm told is the blue walls was started by Jewish settlers who saw blue representing spirituality and being a symbolic colour of the sky, heaven, and God. Every medina has a "mellah" which is the Jewish side of the old town. Inside the medina you'll see shops with containers piled high with blue pigment in different shades and each spring the entire medina is re-painted in shades of blue.

    SandiF, did you catch the 1 hour feature on Tangier ? on CNN last Sunday ? It will probably repeat later tonight. It was interesting to hear what the current expats living there had to say about the city when they first moved there years ago.

    Yes, I did... taped it and watched it again. I think it's the most European of all Morocco cities, even more so than Marrakech. Tangier... there you can find the best tapas, even better than Spain. I plan to be back over the end of year holidays.
