Dar Settash - my hideaway home in the ancient Fes Medina.

Relaxing with my dear hosts, Jon and Jen with our ubiquitous sheesha pipe in the rooftop"menza."

Riad Fes, A palatial hotel suited for a honeymoon in the heart of the medina.

A visit to the Fes tannery is a must. Fes is known not only for the red felt hat, but also some of the finest leather goods in the world.

Tami's place - the cheapest and most delicious Moroccan home cooking in the Medina.

I was actually in Fes to learn Arabic, no easy undertaking! I did leave able to read and write in Arabic!

Tortoises are the preferred pet for dar dwellers.

The famous Barbary apes near Ifrane, Morocco.

My hosts in a Moroccan desert Oasis: Mustafa and Kim. Kim is an adminstrator at the American School of Casablanca. We met on an international school accreditation team in Amman, Jordan. She met Mustafa, her Moroccan husband, nearly 20 years ago when she began her teaching career at an orphanage in Morocco.
