Street scenes in Fes, Morocco
Many of the towns and cities we visited in Morocco can be very confusing to the unwary visitor. I was pleased that our tour group had a very patient guide. The streets and lanes twist and turn in all directions, meandering in this way and then that way, sometimes turning back on themselves.
Possibly the most confusing are those in the medinas of Fes, said to have over 9000 laneways in a perplexing labyrinth of noise, aromas, people, animals, street vendors and every imaginable item for sale. It claims to be the largest non-car urban district in the world which is not surprising given the narrowness of the streets.
