The festival turned out to be fairly typical of other festivals except seems that in Europe the real party begins after 9. We, on the other hand, like to get to bed by 9 on nights before we are hiking (although we were up until 1 during our visit to Fez to enjoy the Sacred Music of the World in June).
Here are some samplings of the pictures from the food festival.
This morning the weather was perfect. We started promptly at 6:30 just before the sunrise. It was cool but not for long as we began our climb immediately.
We found our first fruits of the hike. Nice figs and grapes.
We reached our first and only town along the way at around 10. We continued on up through the beautiful mountains surrounded by valleys.
We are now settled in a mountain town of Consuma. We have another climb to begin our hike in the morning but then we get to enjoy some downhill also!
