9,400 Alleys of FEZ, Morocco

Thursday, November 3 FEZ

Good thing we had a guide to see the Medina today as the old city of Fes has 9,400 alleys. You could get lost in there for days! We visited a tannery and a place where they weave fabrics out of silk made from agave, cotton and wool.

Later we ventured out on our own in the “new” city (it’s only 700 years old) and walked about until we found the golden arches. They’re everywhere.

I guess if you want something you have to wake him up
