Coffee shop in Fez - Photographer Jerome Lorieau
Jerome Lorieau says: I am pleased to send you this photograph taken in October 2008.
I took this picture on a journey through Morocco while exploring its Imperial Medinas. I came across this tiny traditional looking café when walking through the Medina. I must say that I could not resist having a mint tea in it while observing the busy street life and hearing the lively conversation of the card players in the café.
I really enjoyed wandering the streets and lanes of Fez, having the feeling of getting lost and losing every sense of direction. As a travel photographer, I visited many places but nothing fascinated me more than the ancient city of Fez. Unfortunately I only stayed 3 days in the Medina. However, I already plan to come back in 2010 and spend more time in Fez in order to experience for longer its everyday life, its people and to document its culture
