The garbage collection strike that brought the Fez Medina to a virtual standstill for the last three days appears to be over.

During Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning vast amounts of rubbish were cleared away. Local shopkeepers and residents were also hard at work washing and sweeping neighbourhood streets. R'cif, which had been one of the worst hit areas, was completely clean by 10 this morning.

Hopefully the clean-up will continue and visitors to Fez will once again enjoy the clean streets and friendly people of the Fez Medina.
