Our overnight visit to Fes included a visit to the medina [the old city] and the souk [the market]. Images will tell more than I could in words as we followed our guide, Aziz, through the maze of shops and stalls to visit a tannery, a pottery making mosaic tables and fountains, a metal-work cooperative, a carpet showroom, and more…So, here goes!
Can you tell that colors, smells, textures, sounds and images were brimming over? Fes was a feast. So many things piled up or hung on walls, modern mosaics for your buying pleasure.
On the way back to the ship in Casablanca, the bus stopped at a man-made lake. On the opposite side of the street was this striking display of red onions and squash. So, I will leave you for now with these images. Not much history; few dates or facts. My mementos of Morocco were all about the five senses.
