Charming and the most "genuine" city of Morocco. This because we had the change to get half a day visit with official guide (Rachid-Krimi74@yahoo.fr) very brlliant and competent about what to show best tipical places in Fès. We've started with a panoramic view of Fès from one of the two mannor ovrlooking the old medina. Then we went to see Le Palais Royal one of the official residende of the you King Hassan VI. Nearby there is the old judish area (called mellah) plenty of people chatting, discussing about daily life. Very caracteristic place; but what really impressed us was the place where people are working and painting leather called Les Tanneries, which really impressive looking at those people working so hard and difficult conditions (see our pictures).
Also we went to visit where ceramist makers are making all kind of thinks using specific materials (argilla) and cooked into big own using wood and olive noodle. Astonish you can't beleive it.
Finally we went inside to huge old medina and we stayed for more then 2 hours looking almost every corner; plenty of people selling food, bread, meat, eggs,poultry, vegetables, fruit any kind and also a basket of alive "escargot"; unveliable.
I'm still enthusiastic watching to my own video and picture, so if you want to share some of our fun take a look.
Again a special thanks to our guide Rachid, which have done an outstanding job; well done and keep in touch, you'll never know in life. For those of you need to have more information I'll be glade to share it with you all (firstname.lastname@example.org)
But now take a few minutes to watch our coloured photos, about le Tanneries, old Medina and the ceramist makers; i'm sure you'll enjoy. If you want to watch full trip to Morocco, pls go under picasa site and ask for Roberto's Morocco pictures.
Have a great fun, then.
