          Charming property overlooking the Medina

          Our group paid for "Medina View" rooms, but those on the first floor of the hotel really had only "pool" view rooms with just a smidgen of the Medina visible. Be sure to request one of the higher floors if you want to see the Medina. Walls are thin, and you can hear talking in the adjoining rooms (or loud televisions). Smoking is allowed in the bar and lobby, which is obnoxious to most Americans. That said, the spa is fantastic and service is five star. Breakfast and lunch were excellent. The pool and gardens are gorgeous. I would stay here again.

          Lousy experience at Sofitel Palais Jamai

          Overall, it was a disappointment. Our first room #232, was disgustingly dirty, especially on the floor, but this room was sorely in need of major renovation. They were full and had no room to switch us to until the next day. The manager Aziz Lemkouem promised spa treatments, which we had, to make up for the experience, but they never took them off the bill. The second room #408 was much better, with nice views of the Medina and a carpeted floor. The heat however had the room up to about 90 degrees, so we had to call maintenance. The internet worked fine our first night, and then the entire property had no internet the next night. Sofitel should be embarrassed.........

          ... the waste from the tanning process went into the river (Oude - river - Bou Khrareb) which we were told will now not be the case. That's not quite as bad as it sounds as the tanning is done with all natural products, such as urine and plant dyes. But along with the sewerage and garbage also in the river it is a grey brown disgusting looking mess.  The big highlight was the pottery, where we saw pots and tiles being made. Fes is the centre for Moroccan 'zellige' ...

Our lives were polar opposites. Later that night the stoned Berbers played the bongos and sang songs about Africa (consisting of the creative lyrics 'Africa' 'sahara' 'Jamaica' repeatedly) around a campfire while we smoked hashish and mellowed out. I had a peaceful sleep that evening, falling asleep to the sound of the bongo ...

As expected, the Camel senior groaned at the thought of taking the walk back to the village - or was it at the thought of my weight? We said our good bye to Hamid, and a few photos later, headed back to the village. Mustafa led the caravan again as usual, and when he saw another caravan, he took a bit of a detour and to my chagrin (I am still on top of this ‘chameau l’attitude - camel of attitude - ...

          Anyway, the backside of the hamman was opened and down a series of stairs I could see a fellow shoving wood and animal bones (seriously) into a large oven. I quickly learned that this was how the water in the hamman was heated. Yikes. The guys shoveling the wood and goat feet – seriously I saw him throw one on the fire) into the oven had ...

          ... our reasoning doesn't really make sense to me. We were obviously conscious of the fact that it was Ramadan because we allowed half an hour to catch a cab in case all of the taxi drivers were sleeping in. However, we did not consider how Ramadan would affect the cafe we had seen in the train station when we arrived. Spoiler alert: it was closed. And because we in fact did not have trouble catching a cab, we arrived at the train station about forty minutes before our ...
