Tangier is Having a Makeover

Local artisans in Tangier have embarked on an ambitious series of projects to clean up and beautify their neighbourhoods

According to a report carried by Morocco World News, the initiative began this year with several neighbourhoods in Tangier competing to create the most impressive decoration of their streets.

The time-sequence video (above) shows local Moroccans designing, cleaning, building, decorating, and beautifying their street. The engineers, architects, wrought-iron workers, designers, painters, artists, handy-men and residents worked day and night to turn their street into a dream-like, colourful, and spotless destination.

I'm convinced this is the 'Chefchaouen effect', and so much the better for it. Imagine what a paint job would do for some streets in the medina. Doen't have to be purple! Even flowers and potted plants...a gesture that shows the populace care about their environment.
