Fes, Morocco

Fes, Morocco

I do not know how to describe how crazy my days was in Fes, Morocco. The Medina there was huge and it’s like a maze. But I do not buy those crap that you need a guide to travel around Medina because you will get lost. There are so many gates in the Medina and taxi is really cheap. If you get lost, just find a taxi and get to the gate. I think it’s so much more fun to walk around on your own and discover the Medina by yourself. Ofcourse you will say how do I know the history of everything, Well, I got my tricks and I think it’s Not dangerous at all to walk around on your own. You just need to know Arabs are the most hustling people in the universe and they will either try to sell your something or help you with all their hearts.

Once you enter the Medina, people will try to come to you while you walk around on your own. Some will ask you whether you need a guide, other just want to talk to you and help you…esp you are a single girl..like me.

So, it was Friday when I walked around the Medina. From noon till 3pm most of the stores are going to close because they need to pray. I arrived at 11:30 in the morning and my plan was to keep running and asking people where is the Tannery(where Moroccan tanned the leathers). This method worked because people kept pointing the correct direction for me and in 10 mins, I arrived the Tannery!

People gave me some mint leaves to cover up my nose so the smell from the tannery are NOT that bad. But whenever I go, Moroccan men will always ask me…SEX? Sex?….ahahahhha! and I will always said LATER:P

In order to impress me, they will do their best to be my GUIDES:P Some showed me around the main tourist attractions and take me to some famous museum and palace!

And ofcourse I went shopping….and I shopped like crazy! I got a very interesting Antique Berber camel leather bag. So many Silver Jewelries got stitched on it and I LOVE IT!!

And the Shop owner served me Moroccan lunch at his store:P

Afterward..I went to do more shopping and checked out how local make Argan oil. It’s just too amazing how soft you skin can be after applying this oil:P

One very funny story happened 2 days ago in Fes that I needed to tell you guys. When I was strolling around in Medina again the other day, one guy came up to me and followed me around. He kept trying to be my guide even I said NO to him so many times and insisted to have me visit his family! Then all of a sudden, 2 guys tried to talk to me also and that jumped into a huge fight. People are surrounding them to check out what happened and I just wanted to stay out of this! Then the fight stopped after the guy’s family showed up and took me to his house!

The decoration in the house is SO pretty! I really like the Moroccan style furniture:)

And look at the food they served me!!! It’s some kind of soup and sheep meat!!!

And after dinner, they took me to a SPICE MARKET and some local market. And ever time I told them I want to go back to my hotel, they would said THERE’s STILL MORE TO SEE!!! They took me to one door of the palace and I took couple of photos. Then afterward, they said there’s another DOORS! I mean it’s really amazing to check out the 7 doors at night but I REALLY WANT TO GO TO BED!!!…lol. Sometimes, Arab people really drive me crazy!

  10. Dearest Tammy,
    Quite an adventure again; as you live through many and ongoing. But those people can be pushy but they mean so well. So many cultures are that way! You did well I guess and got to see some real life of real people aside from the usual sight seeing.
    You still do all on your flip-flops?
    Wishing you Godspeed again to wherever your next destination leads you.
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  11. Morocco looks amazing, especially all of the mosaics and the painted wooden roof.

    I would’ve been quite afraid of that fight! You managed very well, it was still quite strange though!

  29. Hi sweety, loved hearing your tales about Fes…how crazy is the Medina – i would be far too scared to walk around alone, I did also notice the guys or guides that follow you around everywhere. And did they also nag you to buy a leather bag at the tannery? I told them I was a vegan! i hope you managed to buy some argan hair oil to bring back home, its amazing! Your photos are brilliant!
