Morocco – finding our feet in Fes

A travel day today with a flight from Madrid to Fes in the north of Morocco. We arrived in the old city late in the afternoon and are staying in a Riad with a courtyard and fountain just outside the most gigantic doors to the room. There have a live-in tortoise roaming the garden.

We took our first reconnaissance of the ancient Medina before dinner. Here’s some of what we saw.

Coming out of our front door.

This will be the beverage de rigueur for the next couple of weeks; not that there haven’t been offers made on the street regarding other substances.
