Fes - District tanners - read first comment. (garbarnia skór - czyt. pierwszy komentarz)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

District tanners. Tanned skin is here using the traditional method of bird droppings. Working tanners - standing in the colored vats of chemicals - is very dangerous. Very rarely, they live to old age.

Dzielnica Garbarzy. Skóry są tutaj garbowane tradycyjną metodą przy użyciu ptasich odchodów. Praca garbarzy - stojących w kolorowych kadziach z substancjami chemicznymi - jest bardzo niebezpieczna. Bardzo rzadko dożywają oni sędziwego wieku.

• This district is well known and it is attended by tourists to take good pictures. Despite the high risk for the life of dyers it is an activity that still remain in operation and considering the new and safer dyeing systems I suppose for tourist reasons. I think it should be time to transform into archaeological environment and quitting this dangerous operating activities.

• Anyway, your photo is great and smartly records this place. I Like the upshot a lot.
