Dreaming of Fez

the view from the ceramics shop, Fez

It is bone-chilling COLD in Toronto right now, so I thought I’d post a photo from a warmer time — November 16. Fez is known for ceramics so my guide, Hassan, took me by petit taxi to a ceramics shop outside of the ancient quarters to give me a firsthand look at the processes. The view from this shop was spectacular, as you can see. It was well outside of the medina walls.
