Postcards from Morocco: Souks
In the heart of the Medinas, or old parts of the city were the souks. Here is where all sorts of goods are bartered for and sold. Fortunately we had guides while we made our way through the labyrinth of streets. The Medina in Fès had 9500 streets and once through the gates, we entered another world.
It's hard to describe the experience of wandering around the Medinas - it was a complete assault on the senses. I saw things I've never seen, heard things I haven't heard and smelled things that I have never smelt before. The flurry of activity made it somewhat challenging to photograph, which was a little frustrating considering there were opportunities around every corner.
Here are a few images from the souks:
Lovely colours. Souks are exciting places to visit. You never know what you are going to find!
