A Flash Flood in Fez

Yesterday afternoon saw the Medina of Fez having something of a bath. A flash flood which lasted only twenty minutes or so washed the city streets clean and had pedestrians dashing for the nearest available shelter. As in previous floods the objects being swept down the steep streets provided some entertainment. This time they included pairs of shoes, a small teddybear and a baker's tray

One bemused tourist from the UK said, as he glumly watched the small river washing down the Talaa Sghira, "I thought this was Africa where it is always dry and sunny".

The View from Fez was on hand and recorded these images on a slightly damp iPhone.
