Chefchaouen’s disappointing waterfall
Chefchaouen, Morocco is in the north of Morocco and is probably most famous for its beautifully vibrant blue medina (or city center). The Morocco Lonely Planet also said the city is famous for a beautiful Chefchaouen waterfall (pictured above). Unfortunately while I was there the waterfall was a bit of a joke with hardly any water flowing. It was definitely more like a sad trickle.
When I visited in May of 2010, the weather was cool (not as hot as further south in Marrakesh or Fez). I spent most days sitting at a cafe nearby the waterfall drinking the most delicious mint tea of my life. Like during most of my travels in Morocco I was able to spend most days just sitting at a cafe quietly thinking—and watching as life moved by. Check out those giant carpets drying on the side of the wall.
