Embark on a captivating visual journey from study abroad excursions to the Moroccan cities of Chefchaouen and Tangier where vibrant colors, rich cultural tapestries, and tantalizing culinary delights come together in perfect harmony. This photoset aims to celebrate the unique charm and distinct character of these two cities, showcasing the mesmerizing interplay of colors, the diverse cultural influences, and the delectable flavors that define the essence of Chefchaouen and Tangier. This photoset includes a series of captivating images that capture the iconic, blue-washed streets and buildings of Chefchaouen.

Tangier's Electric Charm: Tangier is extremely unique to Morocco and my first Africa experience. With cats roaming and calls to prayers, culture shock was in play to say the least but the Camels brought me back down.
