Saving The World And An Imperial Cities Tour!
By Paul Homewood
You know what they say about poor Jack, all work and no play!
Well our heroic planet warriors will have plenty of time for the latter.
COP22 organisers have made sure that the armies of tofu eating, human hating, yogurt weavers have plenty to enjoy, after a couple of weeks of boring each other into early graves.
For instance, they have laid on the Imperial Cities Tour:
Customized stays will be organized to offer to The Conference of Parties (COP22) participants the opportunity to discover Moroccan culture & Traditions.
Day 1: Marrakech – Fez
Full day trip through the forests of Middle Atlas. We go first to Beni-Mellal, then to the sources of Ain Asserdoune, before we take the road of cedars. We will surely meet macaques, which inhabit the forests, and you can enjoy the many breathtaking views of the valleys.

Day 2: Fez
Full day for a complete tour of Fez: Fez contains the memory of 12 centuries of history and reveals the extreme refinement of the Moorish culture.
Spiritual & cultural centre of traditional Morocco: Fez is a city of diversity, unique in its splendour.
The medina narrow streets are animated by many souks, such as the tanners’, dyers’, or, the carpenters’ which is just steps from the Nejjarine fountain. The streets are also marked by places of study or prayer such as the Zaouia of Moulay Idriss which considered one of the most blessed zaouias of Morocco.

It’s a hard life being an eco-warrior!
But the ones I really feel sorry for are the spouses, when these eco-tards get home. It must be bad enough to put up with weeks of earnest “how we saved the world” claptrap.
But day after day of descriptions about Andalusians and souks must be enough to make them want to put their heads in the gas oven!
