World Cup screening in Fez



It may be that you've had enough of sacred music and would like to see the opening ceremony of the football World Cup tomorrow, Friday, as well as the first two matches.

The Hotel Jnan Palace in the new city has a sports screen in the bar (just about the only one in Fez) and tells us that they will be screening the event.

The venue for the opening ceremony is Soccer City between Soweto and Johannesburg, and will be followed by the opening match, hosts South Africa vs Mexico. The next match is France vs Uruguay to be played in Cape Town immediately after the first match.

What's this 'sports screen' that only the Jnan Palace has in Fes?

It's "one of the only ones with a bar"... or so we are told. Some of us watched it on a small screen in a cafe.

I think it has colour as well!
