... and we saw some magnificent examples as the craftsmen still make the tiles, cut and lay them the same way as has been done for well over a thousand years. The most magnificent examples however were in some of the madrasa's (religious schools), shrines and the university that we visited in the Medina. The university al-Karaouine is the oldest in the world, having been started a couple of hundred years before Oxford and Cambridge, in 859 AD. The medina is a maze ...
... no way we could have found it without a guide. It is an absolute warren. Four million people live inside the old walls.
This is not the place to be a sheep or goat. We have seen sheep in push carts, being lead along, being carried and we know what's happening to them on Thursday.

... we were right but they kept yelling out and telling us we were going in the wrong direction in the end we just ignored them and kept walking. In Marrakech they are allowed to ride motor bikes within the madina so on more than one occasion i thought we were going to get flattened. We found our door under a bridge and made our way into our own little oasis for the next two days. Not feeling like we had the energy to head out in search of food we decided to eat at the ...
