Fez

We spent this past weekend in Fez, Morocco. Even though we spent 7 hours in a roasting van traveling, it was well worth it; there was not a dull moment. We visited many historical sites and learned a great deal about the foundation of Fez. On our way through the medina, we saw medrassas, a tannery, coppersmiths, and lots of donkeys. Oh and the food….absolutely amazing. On Saturday night we had a three course meal of soup, chicken tagine with apricots and figs, and platters of fruit for dessert, which was followed up by tea on the roof top. On Sunday, we went to a cafe which was kind of hidden in the medina. I was skeptical, but I ordered their infamous camel burger, which turned out to be delicious. There are so many things that absolutely amaze me about this country, I wish I could put them all in words. The atmosphere here is refreshing, everyone is living, coexisting, no one is caught up in their own world. Even the long, hot bus ride was enjoyable. I couldn’t divert my eyes from the beautiful landscape. Maybe it’s just a nice break from the city living back home, but I absolutely love it here…
