Shaouen, the Blue City of Morocco

Hello, my name is Inosho.
I traveled to Morocco with my father Amaka and his son at the end of the year.

This time, we will visit Shaouen, the famous "Blue City" of Morocco.

The reason why the city is blue is because Jews who fled persecution from Portugal and Spain settled here in the past.

The color blue is sacred to the Jewish people, which is why the entire city of Siawen is blue.

The view of the entire city was amazing.

It was a beautiful city and I felt like my heart was being cleansed.

At the same time, I thought a bit about how persecuted Jews used to feel.

By the way, there used to be a city called Rune City in Pokemon Ruby Sapphire, which I was addicted to, and I personally found Shawen to be somewhat reminiscent of Rune City.

However, I have heard that Renesity was modeled after a city in Greece.

Shaouen is quite a touristy area and there are tourists like us everywhere, but there are also places like this where there are few pedestrians.

By the way, tourists in Chaweng are not only local Moroccans, but also many people from Europe such as England and Spain.
On the bus traveling from Fes to Chaweng, an English couple was talking endlessly on the diagonal behind us.

He looks a bit like a Moroccan in height and appearance, and from afar he looks almost Moroccan.

Amaka said that since he started wearing this outfit, he has been greeted by locals. To blend in with the locals, it might be a good idea to start with the way you dress.
