Oh I never thought that you also have the black and white but I'm talking
about the typical Moroccan ones with different colors and ornaments around
the neck. Thanks for that info anyways.

Resembles more a regional center in the Pampas!!!

I remember having seen on TV and read in books some reports on Fez as a spiritual center of Islamic learning and also as a center of caravan trade.
But except for some traditional-style buildings and Arabic script on fašades what appears here has more in common with a remote provincial capital in Argentina than with one of the most ancient cities and centers of learning and culture in the world! And in this whole thread the number of camels is zero, in a hub of caravan trade one would except them by the hundreds!
Another question: are there many people living there who do not speak and read Arabic? I always thought that Arabic is the main language in Morocco and that everybody learns it, I also heard that many Moroccans speak Tamazight which is written in an alphabet resembling mathematical signs and Greek letters but it seems as if the main language is not Arabic but French, strange that even some traffic signs are only in French, usually such essential information is put in the national language as not all drivers (certainly not professional lorry and truck drivers) are university-level linguists! Tamazight seems to be absent from the streets! Also, I saw that the receipt from McDonalds is in French only, here such restaurants (associated with bad junk food) are frequented by the lower classes of society who speak usually the national language and some English, perhaps a chique restaurant puts the menu and receipts in French (albeit with translation) but certainly not a McDonalds, they will put in in Dutch and perhaps in English for tourists.
Apparently the situation regarding language and society seems to be different in Molrocco than here, can somebody who knows the place well inform me of the details?

Hellooo, is there any nightlife in Fes?
Unfortunately, I have been sent as an exchange student to study to fes and not Casa, Mara or Tangier ..
And I am not sure, if this is right place to post - but could anyone tell me if there are ny decent gyms in Fes? The ones I know, which are ~300dh are not good (old equipment, 3 days a week only, etc) and the good ones are like 1000-1500 dhs/month, wtf? haha In europe I pay like 30euros for a good gym, 7 days a week, etc.
