information about morocco  Fes el BaliMorocco, Taounate
In famous Fes tanneries many people work in very bad conditions. They stand in dyes up to their knees and even deeper for several hours a day. The dye is made of cow's urine, pigeon's shit with an addition of natural pigment. The odour is revolting.

I avoided going to the tanneries when I was in Marrakech, because of the stench you are describing. I'm feeling quite ashamed now that I didn't have the stomach to endure this for a few minutes, when the people who work there have to do this day in, day out. The work these people do must be back breaking and heaven knows what kind of health problems they must be experiencing.
