There are 8 or so rooms throughout the house, each unique. Ours was large and right off the courtyard so not very private. The bathroom was very small with a makeshift shower.

He was still at 1,200 and didn't want to come down, so he turned to me and said "Help me out here" and I said "OK. 900," to which he made a sound that roughly translates to "You're no ...
We have officially stepped out of our comfort zone by visiting Fes, Morocco. Private accommodations in an 8th century medina took more courage than I expected. We know were were in for one hell of an experience when we were guided (late afternoon) through narrow passageways to a door at the dead end of an alley. This would be our home for the next week. We didn't leave the house that first night -- when the call to prayer ...
... were left waiting again. We were then brought onto a concrete slab of a table where we were exfoliated from head to toe. The amount of dead skin peeling off was unbelievable as buckets of water poured over our heads. Next, our hair was washed and more cold water dumped on us as we sat on small stools among the other women and children. Finally, came a quick massage with argon oil accompanied by the attendant singing and telling me to go to sleep in French. After more buckets ...
