Meknes Stroll

It was one of those great days when the weather is fine and you have time to relax and just stroll around the medina. My new photographer friend François Struzik was visiting Meknes and in the mood for some sight spotting so we were off. You can see some of his work on his Simply Human blogs (a well found name if ever I saw one).
Well, a nice day and a walk around Meknes with a photographer, you can imagine I dusted off the old camera and felt inspired ;)

Here is François as we set off into the medina. First we went down to the Medersa and around the main mosque. We stopped off at the kiseria to see Hicham the damasquinerie malem and then headed towards the cotton spinners.

We visited the man who patiently chips away at tiny little zelliges with an oversized hammer and also the coppersmith's shop where I love to buy all their little pots and pans.

We finally ended up in the fruit and vegetable markets which led us to the metal forgers and the carpenters before heading back up towards the riad.
