Mehdia - the Land of Fresh Fish. Morocco Trip. [01:56]
Mehdia is a beautiful coastal town near the city of Kenitra , 30 km north-east of the capital of Morocco Rabat . It is known for its fishing port and of course, fish market! You can get the freshest most beautiful fish in this market: sardines, whiting, shrimp, prawns, squid, crab, sole,...they have it all! Outside the market, there are people specialized in cooking the fish you just bought. They can prepare it for you anyway you want: grilled, fried, or even in a tagine! I love grilled fish! and all you have to do is put some salt on it and grill it... it is so fresh that no other spices are needed! ohhhh yum... Mehdia is one of those places that will make your heart beat. It will remind you of slowing down, taking a moment, and simply enjoying the view...
TO SIDI IFNI WITH LOVE [07:18]
This dreamy place with its first impression very much unlike anything else in Morocco is full of promise and unfulfilled potential. Its rich history, only in part recalled, remains forgotten but still lingers in the air. In 1476 the Spanish took over the fort built by merchants from the Canary Islands and named Santa Cruz de la Mer Pequena. It served as a secure base for slave expeditions. In 1524 it was swept away by the Saadian dynasty. Its ruins were chosen by a Scotsman called George Glas as a trading post in 1764. The present town was built by the Spanish during their second stay in Santa Cruz from 1934 to 1969. Today the authorities are doing a great deal to renovate and revitalize the town extending the port facilities improving the road infrastructure and trying to attract more tourism. If you visit once you are likely to return time and time again. It is a few hours drive from Agadir and it has several inexpensive but reasonable hotels. Cost of living is much lower than in Agadir and there is so much to see on the way to Guelmim as well as the wondrous Legzira beach. It is ideal for surfing and paragliding and you can feast yourself on freshly caught fish which you can buy at the market and have grilled for a few dirhams at the nearby BBQ stalls.
Chefchaouen -- The Blue City of Morocco [05:09]
One of Morocco's most popular tourist destinations, Chefchaouen is most known for its blue-rinsed buildings and alleys, an old tradition leftover from the city's Jewish population. Chefchaouen was founded by Moorish exiles from Spain, in 1471, as a small fortress to fend off the attacks of invading Portuguese forcess in northern Morocco. After the Spanish Reconquista, the small mountain town became one of the largest Moriscos and Jews refuge sites, and during their stay they managed to leave their mark on it, one that makes the modern city so special. The name Chefchaouen comes from "chauen", which is Spanish for horns, and refers to the shape of the two mountains overlooking the settlement. But it's not its strange name, the beautiful and unique handicrafts sold by local craftsman, or the delicious goat cheese that attracts the majority of tourists to Chefchaouen. It's the blue-painted houses and buildings of the city, a tradition inherited from the former Jewish inhabitants. In the Bible, Israelites are commanded to dye one of the threads in their tallit (prayer shawl) blue, with tekhelel. This was an old natural dye, processed from a species of shellfish, but in time its production collapsed and the Jewish people eventually forgot how to make it. But, in honor of the sacred commandment, the color blue was still woven into the cloth of their tallit. When they look at the dye, they will think of the blue sky, and the God above them in Heaven. While the Jewish population ...
Inside Elevator of Aquarium in Morocco Mall [00:40]
Although am not French or Moroccan to translate what those in video are saying, but I sure did enjoy this. When you visit Morocco mall, why not give the little Aquarium a try? After all, you may see one gorgeous swimmer wearing a body suit feeding some fishes! I sure enjoyed that ;).. I totally did not think that the elevator ride in the aquarium was a rip off or anything. Make the best of it and enjoy some nature if you go.
