While so many other Moroccan cities have a tendency of dying quickly after sunset, Safi goes on deep into the night.The artificial and sparse light helps new contours and colours to stand out, while they might be turned almost invisible from the strong sun light during day time.Snails in hot soup —...more
Favorite thing: On our way from Agadir to El Jadida we made a stop in Chemaia. We had a breakdown of our car while it was raining heavily. We neede a rope. Luckily we met a shepherd with his herd of goats. He told us to go to the nearby village Chemaia.
Travelling in this area and visiting this village felt like a step back in time. On the mainroad we saw a lot of horse carts, coming back from the market. In Chemaia we saw a separate lane for these horse carts beside the asphalt.
When we entered the village, it was still raining and all the unpaved roads were very muddy. Around the mosque and central place we found a lot of stalls with vegetables and fruit. And luckily we found also a shop where we could buy rope to repair our car for the time being.
A pity of the rain, but anyway we enjoyed to look around in the village.
Chemaia is 64 inland west of Safi at the Atlantic coast.Related to:
