Eid in Fez Medina ~ Photo Essay

The Festival of Eid in Fez was blessed with a slightly cooler day and clear skies. Clear, that was until the smoke of charcoal and wood fires filled the streets. The View From Fez team was fortunate to be invited to a friend's house and enjoyed a wonderful day and (as usual) too much food. (Click on images to enlarge)
Our friend Lahcen invites us to a street barbecue
Salahadeen works getting the charcoal burning
... while the skewers are prepared
Australian visitor, Christel Taylor, starts loading the skewers
Meanwhile more stomach-lining is drying on the washing line 
Barbecue action!
Fatima Zahra shows how to cook while not burning
Finally, the first feast of the day is ready
While tomorrow's feast awaits cutting up
Back in the streets the barbecues continue to burn
...and the sheep skins are prepared for sale
And, in the end,  it is always mint tea

The View From Fez would like to thank Rachida El Jokh and her family for the wonderful hospitality.

Eid Mubarak!
