This August we will venture all the way to South of Spain and bits and parts of Morocco.  We have our eye set on the Blue City of Chefchaouen. Chefchaouen is the northwest city of Morocco nestled in the mountain region.

The blue washed Moroccan city offers plenty of food and attraction.  We will be delighted to indulge in the seafood cuisine that this city offers.  The Tissemlal Restaurant in Casa Hassan Hotel was recommended.  The city offers ample shopping for fine wool, pottery and linens. A place to stay Casa Perleta and Casa Sabila.

The local weather in Chefchaouen is about 92 degrees (33 c). All we can say is bring it on.  We are ready for that kind of humidity (we think HA!). Currency is Dirham (1 United Arab Emirates Dirham equals 0.27 US Dollar).  And more importantly Se Habla Espanol alla. YAY!

Outdoor Dining in Westchester

I am a born-bred Westchester County girl living now in Fairfield County.  When I get that nostalgic feeling for HOME, I go back to the water front on the Hudson for good dining and relaxation. AH, Westchester County living!  Here is a great evening spent at The Red Hat in Irvington, NY.
