Shopping in Fes, Morocco
While wandering the streets of Fes during our visit to Morocco I was constantly surprised by the sights: the colours, sounds, smells and the wide variety of items for sale. Near where I took the photo above of fish for sale there were vegetable stalls, a butcher shop, another selling glasses and watches, yet another selling umbrellas and a few steps away one specialising in chickens (see photo below).
I was actually intrigued by the chickens in the photo below. They seemed quite docile and content to just sit on the scales until they were weighed. If you look closely you can see another one trussed up in a plastic bag. I’m not sure if it was still alive or not.
