That’s what Mrs TimOnTheTrain told me, and I said she was wrong. She wasn’t she was right (again dammit!). They come from Turkey. Just thought I’d get that out of the way and on the record to start with.
Today we visited the Old Medina at Fez. It has been there, pretty much unchanged, since the ninth century. Just think about that for a moment. On the way we stopped at the Royal Palace where our local guide Mr Aziz (wearing his dishdash for the occasion) talked us through some of the things we may see, hear and smell during our visit.
