... el-Bali, through the peaceful garden - the 'jardin jnan sbil' into Fes el-Jedid. It took us over half an hour as we had to stop a few times to work out where we were. Once there, we made a 'mint tea' stop, then 'fell into' the tiny old synagogue as the entrance was quite obscure and if not for the fact that there was a sign over the door, we would not have known it was there. Like most of the buildings in Fes, one could climb up onto ...
... is to help you park safely and to watch the cars while they're parked in their vicinity. Because the riads are always inside the medinas no cars are allowed so it's always a walk dragging the luggage to wherever we're going. This time we were quite close. After the traditional welcome of mint tea and biscuits we were finally shown our rooms and settled in for the night. No one needed dinner after our late lunch so we were glad to get warm and dry ...
... there was a bit of confusion while Abdul talked with the conductor trying to sort it out. Eventually we got a seat in a different compartment and made the very short trip from Meknes to Fes. When we arrived there was a mini bus waiting for us which took us to our hotel. The rooms weren't ready when we got there, but we were allowed to drop off our bags and use the bathrooms (Darren even snuck in a quick shower), then we went out the front where we met our guide who ...

That evening, we finished off our visit in Fez with a traditional belly dancing show, and headed off to the Sahara Desert. ...
Malaga itself is worth a visit: there's a Picasso museum (he was born there) and a nice old city centre in warm yellowy stone.
After the much-needed TLC to get over Morocco we headed off to Granada to visit the stunning Moorish palace, the Alhambra. (See also here and here.) Next stop Barcelona.

Arrived after long day traveling - ferry, train & grands taxi, had a lovely swim and lazy meal.
Friendly people. Clean. Spacious.
Lovely dinner. Breakfast.
Far out of town so ideal of you have your own transport. Taxi expensive and public transport to here atrocious. Bus stop in nearby village Ain Chaggag. Bus late, cramped and had to walk from bus stop.
