Meanderings in the medina of Fes in Morocco
While wandering through the medina of Fes during our visit to Morocco I was constantly fascinated by the huge variety of items for sale. I imagine one could buy almost anything, from food through to weapons and on to clothing.
The aromas were sometimes overpowering and the colours amazing. The visitor’s ears are assaulted with the constant sound of vendors and customers, musicians, the crowds thronging everywhere and the frequent call of “Balak! Balak!” warning of a little donkey loaded high with goods for sale and the roar of motor bikes cutting a swath through the mass of people squeezed into ever decreasing spaces.
