After leaving Chefchaouen we spent the day in the truck with the exception of an amazing stop over at the Roman ruins of Volubilis. The mozaics in the ruins are in excellent condition because they were buried and not known about for centuries. A guided tour in English was arranged for us and we learnt such a lot about the ancient roman way of life.

We arrived in Fes as darkness was setting in, with camp to set up and evening meal to cook. All was achieved and then Corrine advised of a slight change in plans for the next day as Achmed our truck needed a new water pump and Cosmic our driver would need to work on it all day. The alternative of taxis for our Fes touring worked very well and we were taken to various artisans workshops around Fes before commencing a guided tour of the Medina. We definitely needed our wonderful guide as the Fes Medina has some 9,000 twisting little alleys to get hopelessly lost in! In the evening we were pleased to find Cosmic had worked wonders by locating and installing a new water pump in the truck. We then all dressed up and had an amazing night out of Moroccan music, dancing and entertainment.

Footnote: The Archaeological Site of Volubilis and the Medina of Fez are UNESCO World Heritage listed.
