After Zoumi, we take a road towards FES. Before arriving to Fes, we stop for setting up the night. I found an address and a phone number recommended on an internet Forum, I call, ask for the price, 2000 Dirhams (around 200€), oups it’s too expensive for our budget. On the “ routard guide” we find a cheap hotel. We turn in Fes, a policeman give us a wrong direction (even if they don’t know, they give you an answer) and finally we take a guide with a moped and we arrive to the hotel. 200 Dh the bedroom for two, it’s not a luxury, but we don’t care, it’s clean with hot water. We leave the bikes in a watched parking for moped.
For the dinner we find and address in the routard guide , we take the bikes and turn around and around a long time in Fes, before finally finding the restaurant……..closed.
Return to the hotel, I’ve got an other phone number, found on the web, restaurant “La Menara”, I call, the owner advises us to take a small taxi to a cinema where he will await us. He is present when we arrive. We follow him in the Medina and after three or four turns we are lost, there is nothing to do but follow him in this labyrinth.
After walking a moment, he stops in front of a large wood door, we enter in a wonderful traditional family home, with mosaic everywhere and plaster decoration. Hassan welcomes us friendly, he explains us a lot of things about Fes and Morocco. The meal prepared by his mother is excellent, an address to recommend.
For going back to the hotel, Hassan asks to a little boy to guide us through the medina, walking inside the medina during the night when the tourists are away is a funny thing to do.
