Aprill 2011 was a return trip following an initial stay in December of last year. The Riad Borj Dhab in Fes was a great experience in every way, and the staff was unforgettable. It was sad to hear of the manager/restorer's passing upon my arrival the second time. Khalid exuded such great passion for the place, but left behind equally great staffers in Neboule (sp?) and Houda, a delightful young lady who's mom teaches French, but who chose to learn English instead. I very much enjoyed conversing with her at breakfast and getting tips on getting around the new city. Another staffer, who's name I did not get delivered hot mint tea up to the rooftop terrace one night, and as I leaned over the railing gazing across the amber lit medina taking in the crisp North African night air, mint tea in hand, I could not imagine a more wonderful experience! The riad is very near Place R'cif, one of the main entrance squares to the medina and near a main gate to the souk, or markets, with it's 9,000 plus passages. I considered staying at a different riad the second time, but elected to go with the know quality of the house Khalid built and left with the cherry and inquisitive personality of my friend Houda!
