... turned potter's wheel, to watching a tile mosaic table being made, to seeing the bowls and pitchers and vases just prior to going into the kiln. Since we were the only people there, it felt like we were getting a private "behind the scenes" tour of how all the ceramics that we saw in the medina were actually made.

We were flying with Ryan Air and as first timers did not realise that everybody else on the plane did not have assigned seats, so it was like seagulls to a stray hot chip at the beach. Moral of the story is we highly recommend paying the additional fee.
Arrival into Fes was as to be as expected. A tiny little cement shack in the middle of nowhere. We stepped onto ...
