I will never forget Le Chenoua

August 25, 2015


When I was a child and living in Algiers I was taught a beautiful poem called ‘Le Chenoua’ by Albert Camus. I don’t know why but everytime I remember the words to the poem I long to return to Algiers My picture post is about this large and solid mountain that descends down into the mediterranean sea. Here is part of the poem in french . . .

Le Chenoua

Je desirée d’avoir le chenoua, cette lourde et solide montagne, decoupée dans un seule bloc, qui longe la baie a Tipaza de l’ouest , avant de descendre dans la mère. On appércois a loins…

In English it translates to. . .I wanted to review the Chenoua, this heavy, solid mountain, cut from a single block, along the Bay of Tipasa west, easing herself into the sea ….

I love the Mediterranean waters. You can faintly see Le Chenoua in the background

Thanks to Guitahmed I can enjoy looking at this again. sigh.

Route to Tipaza and Le Chenoua

In winter. Although there are only two seasons in Africa really

Thanks for the challenge!
