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. In comparison, it would've been nice to stay in one of the other rooms especially since they were not occupied. Nice rooftop terrace.

Arrival in Fes was simple, Richard, the owner of Riad Tizwa, our new home for the next three days, had provided very explicit directions upon arrival. It appears my sport of haggling is not applicable here in Fes; the taxis actually run on meters. The driver dropped us off at the fountain near Hotel Bahta as directed. Richard used the following …
... to the global village. Our friend from South Africa had booked this tour, which was more specialized tour than the standard medina tours that we had seen online and we were excited to get a glimpse of the day to day lives of these artisans.
We left the dar and headed back up the narrow path, turning right on the main road we had come down the night before (Tala'a Sghira), going down further into the medina. The difference between the medina at 11pm at night and 10am ...
... protect the city, it was such a nice view, and amazing to really see how big the Fez medina really is. Next we went to a traditional pottery and mosaic making factory, it was really interesting to watch them forming the dishes, tagines and mosaic pieces totally by hand. The show room had some beautiful pieces of pottery inlaid with silver and jewels, we couldn't help ourselves and bought a tagine (which was an impulse buy but who cares). Now it was time for the main attraction ...
... some of the younger kids and then started grabbing and stealing the elastics - one doorknob in a zebra outfit tried to grab Caleb's glasses. It's unfortunate that Caleb's last impression of his time in Fez was of kids stealing - he could not really process why they had done it. We talked about it a lot that evening and next day.
We walked over to Riad Andalib for 7:30PM and were escorted up to the terrace which overlooked much of ...
Today we slept in. It was a free day of the tour so we weren't really missing anything. Abdul knocked on the door at one stage to let us know that if we wanted to continue with the others on the longer tour it was going to cost us €385 each, even though we would be leaving earlier. So as we couldn't afford that much, we decided we'd have to just do the shorter one, which meant we'd be leaving the next day! That kinda sucked, but at least we wouldn't be alone - the young brothers ...
