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.

Love these pictures.

The funny thing about Pokemon is that even though it was a video game that kept me inside the house a lot of the time (and I grew up deep in a city so I had to for the most part), it made me really love the idea of exploring. And now whenever I’m on a bike ride through a particularly long trail or going through some weird empty urban space, I hear the Bike Theme and the Lavender Town Theme in my head respectively.

Wait. Are you trying to imply that healing powers are socially offensive?

Because I mean. Jesus healed the blind. Was Jesus being socially offensive when he did that?

Lalondian Tourism page 3 - written by platosbikeseat and drawn bypaperseverywhere!

I was on pins and needles waiting for this one to come out. This was my favorite page to write.
Particularly those last couple panels.
Seeing them brought to life turned my face into the side of a Happy Meal box. The side with the smile. Not the side where the cardboard is folded in and… y-you know what I mean.

When I read the line about the Brian being bigger than the sea, it allowed me to think deeper in depth, because we use our brain to think about things.

I’m three episodes in and this show is just totally baller, it’s so good, it’s like it’s speaking right through me. I’m watching the Funimation dub, and I’m really enjoying all the energy that’s going into the voice acting.

fffff…. OK, I try to reserve some of my judgement because my degree effectively ruins comics for me forever, but.

I’m just a bit… sad that the scripts follow such a pattern? It’s common for a lot of short story comics because it’s a nice, short story arc, easily completed. But it sums up to…

A drags B(and C) into zany hijinks!
A is very weird, B(and C) observe that, but tolerate it.
B(and C, or more) crack, react angrily, and call A out on being weird. They exit stage left, leaving A behind in comical solitude, acknowledging their weirdness.

It isn’t in all of them necessarily! And even ones that sorta follow that pattern can be really enjoyable! But it is weird to see them all lined up? Like “…and they’re walking off again…” That said, the art is so enjoyable I will put up with anything and refresh at midnight every night happily. I’M JUST SO PROUD OF MY FRIENDS…. /lies in a ditch

*Crosses fingers that you’ll end up being pleasantly surprised by the end of the week*
