Jeritilley A picture is worth a thousand words..

Morocco – Fez dye pots – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day…”  If people from Poland are called ‘Poles’ then why are people from Holland not called ‘Holes’ ?? ”

” A conscience is what hurts when all your other parts feel so good.”

The famous dye pots in Fez, Morocco for the photo today.  Luckily, you cannot smell this scene from the photo, as the place stinks.   The dye pots are used to tan the leather hides, using lime, urine, berries and water.  Morocco became independent from France in 1956, although French is still widely understood, in addition to Arabic.  The capital is Rabat (although Casablanca is the largest city) and the country has a population of about 32 million.  The dye pots in the photo are in the Medina, or old town, a mass of narrow passages and small shops.  Well worth a visit if you are in Morocco.   Remember that bargaining is the rule !   Mint tea is the national drink, and couscous the famous national dish.
