Morrocco. A Morroccon guide joins our bus.Fes 26/5/14. The days drive was long and fascinating. Fields of workers with hand plots and horse/cart as well as harvest machines.

We walked. It was hot.
Lunch at (name coming) on way to Jardin Majorelle. I was dying for some iced tea. Of course, there was nothing like that on the menu. I saw someone at a table with a glass of ice, and it occurred to me that I could make my own.
We ordered Salade Variee and The Noir with glasses of ice. The server looked at us with confusion, "Verres? Avec glacons?" Oui. He went over to make the tea, which was right in front of where ...
We had breakfast at the Riad at around 9 am. It was quite good with different breads/pastries, fresh orange juice, grapes, figs, a plum, English breakfast tea, fig and apricot jams, butter, and pancakes. There was also yogurt and cheese, but we didn't eat that--no more dairy for us.

Our host went through some hot tips/things to know, asked what we wanted to do, etc. He is going to arrange a day tour out to the Ourika Valley that will include visiting a Berber village and house, an Argan oil cooperative, carpet cooperative, camel riding, and maybe the some waterfalls.

Relatively clean, though standards changed the 3 nights we were there. Great place to meet fellow backpackers, as with any other hostel. Satisfying breakfast of mint tea, bread and moroccon pancakes. Butter is served everyday, but cheese and cake every other day. The people who run the riad aren't the friendliest, and don't initiate any help for your stay in morocco. Not the best place to find tourist information.
