Where I stayed

I am a little bored of the dirty unclean streets and the hassle that we are getting from people so wanted to have a little quiet day we walked around for a while through the market where you can go and pick your live chicken and its weighed for the price then they cut its throat not nice. There are also camel heads hung up and its the most stinky place in the world. Its making me sick and I am so scared to eat anything.  We had had breakfast in the Riad but we where hungry so Ian had seen this mezzanine place with a roof terrace and we went there it was like a bar in manchester a bit of a shock really being in this old town.  I had a burger and some chips and Ian had some local morrocan things that were like bowls of salad not very exciting. There were millions of flies around though and I swear I am not enjoying it. Its giving me second thoughts about going to India as I can imagine that would be 100 times worse.

Fes is a medival town with the people still very reliant on old ways of working with donkeys and mules and its dusty streets are full of shops with things for sale that have seen better days they look like they have no business for weeks.  I got a few bits for people and Ian bought his parents something off a man that said he had had no business all day ha ha.  He had the gift wrapped before we even said that we wanted it.  Hassle

I am not really liking fes as much as Marrakech and cant believe now that you can get Ryanair flights here god help the tourist brits who think that its good to come here on a holiday lol.

In the evening we were not very hungry and Ian was starting to feel a little ill so we went out and got some bread and cheese and just ate that in the room and got an early night. There is not much to do anyways in the evenings so we just chilled.
