Abdul Jabr's House

A shot from the rooftop of our friend Abdul Jabr's house. He took us in as his customers, but we left as friends. Abdul Jabr's house is a family heirloom that has been passed down from generation to generation. The house itself looks to be hundreds of years old from the interior, filled with tiled mosaic designs, beautifully restored arches, and tall ceilings. You would never know it was there either, right in the middle of the filthy, winding, noisy old city.

As you can see Fes is ancient and haphazardly developed, it has a certain mysterious and exotic feel to it that is truly other-worldly. Always an adventure, never a dull moment, and actually surprisingly beautiful in a saturated humanitarian way.
