Artist's Description

This is a tannery in Fes, Morocco.

We had decided to explore the Medina again and I was fairly confident where I was heading. A local ‘guide’ attached himself to us and steered me away from my original direction claiming there was nothing there and he would take us to good shops and good places for photography. He was so persistent and so insistent that I was going the wrong way that we followed him.

After realising that we were not going to shop at the numerous outlets he took us to we were unceremoniously ‘dumped’ in a side street far away from where we had started and quite isolated too.

We were kindly rescued by another local ‘guide’ who suggested a tannery. At least I knew the tanneries were inside the Medina so we followed him through alleyways we would have never dared venture on our own, climbed up 5 flights of dark stairs to finally reach this rooftop and this wonderful view of the white side. Thank goodness – I was delighted!

Getting out again was another story and there was no way we were going to be able to leave without a purchase so I finally settled on a leather satchel bag for my daughter who has used it everyday since my return.

All in all a good outcome and win win situation.

I love Morocco and cant wait to return.
