Location within Morocco. Distance to Nouvelle Ville
In a nutshell
This place deserves more than a 2 day pit stop. It requires time to be explored and discovered.
Catching a taxi you have two options: Hailing one in the street or going to a taxi rank.
There are ranks in Bab Boujloud, Batha, R'Cif, etc Just look for the small signs saying Petit Taxi.
But whatever you do be quick!
Once a taxi slows down be ready to prance. You run over qnd indicate it's yours by opening the door. Do not talk to the driver first as it is fairly certain some locals will jump in from the other side and off they go.
Be prepared to argue over it being yours depending on the time of day and the rank you are at taxis can be rare and you do not want to be losing out just because you are too civil to fight your corner.
In Fes taxis go on a meter and most drivers turn it on automatically, but do give a quick glance to make sure it has happened.
The small taxis are legally not permitted to carry more than 3 passengers.

Fez was founded in 789
at a place between the mountains
where the river was flushing by.
History has provided the city with long periods of hardship,
but Fez has never died.
Today it has its own culture,
pride, art and even cuisine.

If you get
- Touched on purpose
- stered at in an overly sleezy/ perverted way
- have someone exposing themselveds to you
- groping themselves and asking you for a massage
DO NOT be intimidated or ashamed that it has happened to you beacuse that is what the are relying on.
Instead DO make a scene, shout at them, tell them to go away and leave you alone and do this in what ever your own language is as your tone and body language will let others around know that you are upset and they will come to your help and put the offender in his place.
Normally you will also receive a very sincere and appology from the other Moroccans that hope this incident will not tarnish the rest of your stay.
It will also be good for you to express that something was wrong!
Do remember though that streets are full and the genuine accidental touch can happen but if this is the case the person will appollogise immidiately. And pople watching is a Moroccan past time. But we all know the difference between what is comfortable and what isn't.
