Our first internet café on the African continent turned out to be one of the most beautiful cafés we could hope to have spent time in: the remarkable Café Clock in the medina in Fez.
Walk a short way from the medina’s Bab Boujloud — the “Blue Gate” — through the aptly named “butchers’ guzzar” presided over by the “camel” shown in a previous post, turn left into the narrowest of alleyways, then left again into a small doorway… and emerge into what seems to be a palace.
Founded three years ago by Mike, an Englishman fed up with the drudgery of daily life in London, Café Clock now seems to be an essential stop for travellers in Fez. Mike has a keen nose for the best of Moroccan cooking and a finely tuned ear for the tales of those who pass through his establishment.
Thanks for your hospitality, your fantastic breakfast and your broadband. We’d have been struggling to keep up without all three. Café Clock has certainly left its mark on The Ball…

Hallo Andrew, Hallo Christian,
it looks like the journey is getting very interesting. Yes, that is no doubt for me because you are actually in the best continent in the world in terms of offering hospitality. As you decent it will becomes very interesting.
There is a lot waiting for you in Cameroon. Some arrangements are already in place for you so contact Julius for final touches.
Stay Bless guys.
Hi Julius, yes indeed, as you say, the journey’s only now beginning to take off. We always knew that once out of Europe we’d be immersed in the African passion for football and subject to its wonderful hospitality. That’s exactly what has happened and it’s magic.
