My next stop is the much poorer town Imouzzer--known as the Apple Capital of Morocco. From the edge of town you get a fabulous view of a plateau of apple orchards--and the vast Fes valley even farther below...
The town feels like a beehive after being in Ifrane--and it's apple harvest so there are a lot of pickers coming from out of town.
After soaking in the view of the valleys below, I follow a rough dirt road that clings to the steep hillside so I can get a complete view of the region
Figure this would be a fun place to enjoy my Ramadan ftor... Bad decision...
Remember, this is the apple harvest--so unlike other towns where everybody goes home to have their break fast, here a lot of apple pickers don't have a home to go to--so they pounce on any little restaurant that sells anything edible...
I don't feel like competing with dozens of very hungry apple pickers, so I patiently wait out in the cold mountain wind until they all get what they want... they quickly ate up all the msimmen, harira and just about everything else...
Anyways, it's a different sort of experience...
