Our taxi collected us from the airport and took us to the medina.. with a short walk to the Riad. I was pretty stunned by the Medina and wondered what on earth we had done. The minute the door to the Riad opened we breathed a sigh of relief!
The Riad itself is very well laid out and appointed. We were fortunate in being the only guests so we had the riad to ourselves. We were looked after BRILLIANTLY by a team of Faysal and Fatima. We enjoyed one of Fatima's hoem cooked meals the first night and, whilst expnsive, it was also one of the best we had in Morocco. Faysal was a generous host with his time and hospitality. He got us hooked on Morocan tea and gave us an excellent understanding of Moroccan/Islamin culture and life.
The beds were huge and the dipping pool was a nice relief when we had walked back from the Medina in 45degree heat.
The Medina itself is a crazy place and I can only compare it with my understanding of medieval Britain combined with waves of moped driven by everyone from 7 to 70 years old. I wouldnt wished to have spent any longer in the Medina than we did (3 days) but the opening of the door to the Riad always brought the most welcome relife and relaxation.
