Chefchaouen, a small town in northern Morocco, has a rich history, beautiful natural surroundings and wonderful architecture, but what it’s most famous for are the striking and vivid blue walls of many of the buildings in its “old town” sector, or medina.

The maze-like medina sector, like those of most of the other towns in the area, features white-washed buildings with a fusion of Spanish and Moorish architecture. The brilliantly blue walls, however, seem to be unique to Chefchaouen. They are said to have been introduced to the town by Jewish refugees in 1930, who considered blue to symbolize the sky and heaven. The color caught on, and now many also believe that the blue walls serve to repel mosquitoes as well (mosquitoes dislike clear and moving water).

Whatever the reason, the town’s blue walls attract visitors who love to wander the town’s narrow streets and snap some beautiful photos.

Anonymous asked: Why did you move to Amsterdam?

I didn’t really feel I had anything left in Dublin. I had planned to move last August but the country wasn’t ready. I like the city, I like the culture, I LOVE the food.

It’s a good base too, for starting any expandable business. There’s enough room for me to set up 35 offices in The Netherlands, 250 in France and 200 in Germany. Which is worth something like 25m a year.

I remember when I used to get asks. Asks? Asks? 

Send me asks because I want to answer asks.
