Group Trip to Chefchaouen

Over the weekend we took students to Morocco's 'blue pearl', the city of Chefchaouen. It is known for its blue painted buildings and proximity to amazing hiking trails in the Rif Mountains. 


After a delicious dinner at sunset, students had some free time to explore the city. The next morning they went on a hike along a rocky river with lots of water falls and took a dip in the icy water.


Later in the day, students toured the city and saw the sunset from the Spanish mosque, built by the military during colonial rule. It sits on a hill overlooking the city.


On Sunday, students worked alongside locals in different artisan workshops. Many of the shops still sell leather, metal, and cotton products that are made by hand. 


Here, students pose with the craft they made by hand with the help of a professional weaver.
