Nareszcie urlop

Widziałem dzisiaj niewolnika, który stał się potężniejszy od Cesarza Rzymu

There is nothing about Hassan that makes him look like a common guide. In his dark Ray-Bans he reminds me more of a fighter pilot, an Arabic version of Tom Cruise from Top Gun. Before we know it, he could leave us, sit in the cabin of his F-16 and fly away to fight ISIS over the Sahara dessert.

In his life, he has seen it all. He cheered together with crowds when a gladiator Maximus defeated Commodus in a deadly fight, bringing freedom to his fellow brothers. He stood side by side with Dalai-lama, when the latter opposed the oppressions by the communist Chinese government. He had a pleasure to meet CleopatraAlexander the Great and even a couple of incarnations of Jesus. He was there when Christ climbed the mountain of Golgotha.  Perhaps he even got…

Arab word فأس (pronounced Fes) literally translates as a “pickaxe”. According to a legend, Idris I, the founder of kingdom of Morocco supposedly used a  pickaxe made of gold and silver while planning out the borders of Fez. It was the VIIIth century AD and roughly a hundred years later, the city became Morocco’s first capital. Soon after, Fez was already an important cultural, economical and religious center of the country. The university of Al-Karawijiin saw its heyday with medicine, philosophy and mathematics being studied.

“Mekka of the West” or “Africa’s Athens” as it was called, Fez gradually began to lose its importance only in the 2nd half of the XXth century, once the French moved the capital to Rabat.
