The Blue Boats of Essaouira – Stuck in Customs

The Blue Boats of Essaouira

Other Color-Coordinated Places?

What other cities (or neighborhoods) do you know of in the world where there is a common color theme? Morocco has a ton of them, but I figure there must be many more around the world.

Daily Photo – The Blue Boats of Essaouira

Other than Rabat and Casablanca, this is the only other seaside town I visited in Morocco. It’s amazing! All the boats are painted with this bright nautical blue. They stand out and look full of fantasy and wonder. You can see all these little boats are blue in the photo, but you can also see those same kind of blue accents on the bigger boats in the distance. I like how it is a voluntary thing and everyone just paints their boats this color to be part of the scene… that it’s not a government mandate or anything!
