Scenes of Meknes, Morocco
Despite our short visit to Meknes in Morocco, we managed to cover quite a range of highlights. While the day was full-on, and we covered many of the main features of te city, I didn’t feel rushed at any time.
One of the intriguing tourist attractions in Morocco I’ve shown in the photo above. In many places we saw horse-drawn carriages. Hiring one of these for a tour is an excellent way of experiencing the city, but is seemed to me to be quite incongruous; not the sort of thing I expected there. On the other hand, we also saw many in the various Spanish cities we visited later on our tour. They appeared to be quite appropriate given the nature of Spanish culture, despite the fact that the two countries are neighbours with just a narrow strip of water between them.
The photo below shows a wool market in the heart of the city.
