Le Tour de Fès

Okay, a break from democracy stuff, which will return after my weekend Tangier trip. For now, a photographic tour of Fez:

This, believe it or not, is the McDonald's. Yes, the ceiling is painted. McDo is kind of an upscale, cool place to hang out in Fez. No, I don't get it either.

Moroccan families also take their kids' pictures with Ronald.

The minaret to the Tijani mosque in the medina. The founder of a sufi order born in Algeria who converted many in West Africa, al-Tijani is buried in Fez. The Tijanis were all in town last week, which was interesting to watch.

A light at Dar Tazi/Le Palais de Fes, a favorite restaurant near Place R'cif

The mural and altar in the Église St. François, my local church

And now, off to Tangier!
