It starts at the beautiful new train station of Fez.
A few years ago I would take the train to go to Meknes almost every day. That's only sixty kilometers or so from Fez, but at the time there was only one track - and there were delays all the time. More often than once, what was supposed to be a one-hour ride would become a two-hours trip. I would often come home at 9 p.m. , and I had to go back to Meknes the next morning at 6 a.m.
That's probably why I don't like to go to Meknes - in my mind, the city means lack of sleep.
(But there are two tracks now, and bridges that shorten the trip; and the train ride only lasts a half-hour - it's like magic).
I only know the Ville nouvelle of Meknes. That's where is the French high school where I taught for two years.
Come visit the city with me; it's a little like Fez, but at the same time, very different.
