Arrival: Fes

A travel blog entry by kitkatgo on Aug 04, 2014

... guy came to pick us up. It was the same guy that had gotten us on our arrival.

He was a little bit early, which was good, because I was a little worried about having enough time to buy the tickets. Turned out fine though. We walked to the square to get a Petit Taxi; they are all powder blue in Meknes. The driver did not seem very interested in taking us. The conversation was all in Arabic, so I don't know what was said.

The train station was not far away. We arrived ...

... for a bid - pastries are sold in carts and stalls that are infested by swarms of bees. We saw about 30 bees latch onto a single croissant. We visited a tannery, which is the main attraction in fes after he medina. The slaughtering happens offsite, so they collect the raw skins and process them. The production process starts in big vats run by families of tradesmen. It smelled pretty bad, but thankfully they issued us a mint leaf upon entry to sniff. As we feared, ...

... imagine this cacophony of sound. It's rather amazing and something you get used to hearing, even at 5:30am.
What Fez is famous for, apart from the Fez hat, is it's medina (old city) and that it is considered to be the world's largest car free city. When I mean old it's 789-859AD and has the world's oldest university. Within the walls of this city are 9,000 alleyways which make up the medina. Some are as narrow as 60cm and there will be the odd one as wide ...

... a riot of color and pattern. I was happy that one of our group bought a carpet, I would have hated for them to go through all that for nothing. We also went to the famous tanneries, luckily later in the day, so it wasn’t quite so smelly (pigeon poop is used in one of the early stages of the process).
