Morocco day 4 – Fes – hanging out in the medina

April 11, 2016

After our big day yesterday and with another big day to come tomorrow- we took it back a few notches today.. Today was to be all about soaking up the atmosphere in the medina 🙂

We slept in until 9am! Then showered before heading downstairs for a relaxing breakfast and to plan our day. Breakfast was a yummy combination of pastries, baguette, Moroccan cheese, jams, oj, coffee, hot chocolate and figs.

Then we headed deep into the twisty-windy-vibrant-narrow streets of the medina for a wander for a few hours…

We found all sorts of shops…

Before heading out to dinner- where again we ordered a combination of meals – skewers, pizza, lamb kefta- with the winner being the lamb kefta! Mum was floored! Whose kids are these?
