Study Abroad: Part 16 [Fez/Fes in Pictures]

After the village stay, we went to Fez for a guided tour around the medina.  Here's the visual reel.

The royal palace is getting a scrub-down... 'Cause the king's a-coming!
From where we saw the city, there was a man selling hats.
The green roofs denote shrines or other places of importance.
Alleyways are small and narrow, and you have to watch where you turn around.
There's something... intrusive about watching someone pray.  But I can't look away.
At the shrine of Moulay Idriss II, you can make a wish on a coin.
Because you always need to be reminded of Casablanca.
Talk about a colorful fabric store!
And they sell bags too!
This is the famous tannery of Fes, which also smells disgusting.  They gave us mint plants when we walked through the door to disguise the smell.
I love you too Fes.
