Photo travels Morocco Fez
Photo trip to Fez Morocco, 25 March, Wednesday until Sunday. 5 days.
Fez, the ancient walled city often regarded as the Mecca of the West has lived through history as Morocco’s spiritual, religious and educational center for centuries. Fez is a city of stories, and those stories are not only in those tanned bricks, deteriorated wood works or psychedelic tile works, but also in its people. Great place for photography.
Wednesday we arrive at Fez in the afternoon, after a visit in the Medina we have a nice dinner in a beautiful place. After the dinner we visit two locations for night photography, one with a view point and one in the Medina with the tiny lights.
