Chefchaouen’s Got The Blues

Try these words to the tune of that well known Arabian number, “Moroccan baby blues.”

When your neighbour shades his doorway blue…
And the steps to the mosque have an indigo hue…
When the streets of your town have a sapphire sheen…
And the doors of your stores are toned cerulean…
When the slope up the hill is tinted azure…
But the little boy blue isn’t gloomy at all…
When someone tinges your whole town navy…
And you think that it is great, and not just plain crazy…
You’ve got the Moroccan baby blues – Oh yeah!

Chefchaouen, Morocco - Where you can paint your house any colour you want as long as it's blue.

Now that's talking. This is the Morocco of my dreams. Thank you both for the beautiful photos and commentary. I feel like I have been put in your pocket and am seeing these beautiful sights.

Now you are song writers!!!!! I think that would be a bit much seeing everything blue but maybe it is better than bright red...Jean
