We arrived in Chefchaouen late due to some craziness with our flights due to weather. Many emails later when we finally had confirmation of the day we would arrive in Casablanca Mourad from Dar Meziana had arranged for us to hire a grand taxi to drive us from Casa to Chefchaouen and pick us up at the airport. They usually have someone in Chef that they use for this purpose but they wouldn't be able to make it in time for when we were arriving, so Mourad went through the extra trouble of finding us someone based out of Casablanca and arranging a similar price that their person usually charged. The only bus that leaves from Casa to Chef had left by the time our flight arrived in Casa. It was lovely to get to our final destination sooner than later.
Mourad wasn't at the Dar when we arrived, but rather Naoufal greeted us and our taxi on the main street and helped us carry our bags to the Dar and then make us some delicious Moroccan mint tea.
Both Naoufal and Mourad were wonderful with directions about the town - it's so easy to get around in Chefchaouen. The dar was beautifully decorated, our room was lovely and had more than enough room for the two of us, and the view overlooking Chefchaouen from the rooftop terrace is breathtaking.
The breakfast was plentiful and fresh every morning and the coffee and tea was delicious.
In our travels we stumbled upon a Moroccan lamp store but were in a hurry to get to the Spanish mosque to watch the sunset and so we didn't have a chance to look. Mourad told me that he knew the owner and could arrange to have them meet us at the store in the morning to look at the lamps. Mourad came with us in the morning, however our bus was leaving shortly and we didn't have time to barter so we left without the lamps hoping to find something in Fes or Marrakech. No such luck.
I emailed Mourad and he's been in contact with me about the lamps, even went to the store to take a photo of them for me AND bartered for me. I believe it says so much about the character of the people that welcome you to their dar . . .
When we go back to Chefchaouen to experience a bit more time there we will definitely go back to Dar Meziana . . . Inshaallah.
