Eid Mubarak 2013 - A Photo Essay

Today The View from Fez went on a sheep shopping expedition to souk Binda Bab. The crowd was huge as people hunted for "the right sheep", or as the locals called it "the right mabrouk".  

From early morning the souk was extremely crowded
Finding the right sheep is a long process
Then there is the question of how to transport your sheep...
Finally we discovered a healthy young ram
Bargaining went on for nearly an hour
With the help of "Batman" the sheep headed home
Watching sheep being taken home is a spectator sport
The stairs were a slight problem for a fat sheep
Finally inside the house

The View from Fez wishes all our readers a happy and peaceful Eid
