Free day in FEZ. Upon entering the streets of the medina (old town) feel that the time back: the guild structure is still present in the workplace, the narrowness of the streets does not allow other means of transport as donkeys and a constant tingling of people move through the maze of narrow streets in the middle of which will surprise neighborhoods such as Andalusians and magnificent mosques and Koranic schools. Fez has always been associated with the study and religion, and remains the spiritual capital of Morocco. After visiting the medina, another option is to walk aimlessly through the streets of Fez-Jdid, which houses the royal palace, the mellah (Jewish) and the oldest mosque in Fez.
Arrival at the airport and the center of the medina of Fez, Morocco’s cultural capital.

The trip is a series of strengthsThis day is one of them. The 200 km between Marrakesh Ouarzazate run through the High Atlas. The road must be traveled slowly, for its beauty and because it is a mountain pass that crosses the Atlas to about 2.300m.

Ya estamos de vuelta a esta realidad y dejado atrás unos días maravillosos que no será fácil olvidar, el porqué, es sencillo aquello era ÁFRICA. Me encantaría repetir las gracias a Kco y Alba por habernos preparado este viaje, por querer mostrarnos Marruecos, por su esfuerzo y empuje; pero no sólo a ellos, porque todos habéis hecho de este viaje haya sido tan especial, donde cada uno podremos contar una crónica distinta, donde 13 viajes distintos han coincidido en uno, donde las palabras MAGIA, AFRICA, CAJA NEGRA, MIERDA RICA, MORO, … y tantas más tienen más significados y recuerdos. Y aunque hoy es un día triste para mí, no quería de dejar de escribiros y deciros que repetimos cuando sea, ya sea aquí en Ma…, Madrid, María, Murcia, … o ande sea, que os he echado de menos y eso que aún no me he acostado. Un besazo enorme, un abrazo y hasta pronto.
La verdad es que es dificil destacar algo de nuestro viaje a marruecos porque ahi que ir para descubrir todos los lugares diferentes que puedes encontrar. Toda la hospitalidad y amabilidad de sus gentes. Gracias a todos en especial a Jonas, Hasan etc, etc que hicieron de nuestro viaje una experiencia inolvidable. Por supuesto volveremos. Gracias por todo.
Hola Yunes, Soy Anabel, la profesora de Murcia, amiga de Alba y Kco, que estuvo hace poco en Marruecos. He de decirte que ha sido un viaje inolvidable y que tu país me ha encantado.Después del desierto y de despedirnos de ti, los ánimos estaban un poco bajos, pero nos encantó también la zona de las cascadas de Ouzoud, Volubilis y Marrakech. Aunque ya sabes que el desierto es lo mejor. Gracias por aquellos días tan maravillosos. Sucran por todo, amigo. Juan y yo te estamos muy agradecidos por todo. Un saludo,
