the fes medina is considered to be the largest and oldest medieval city in the world. if you think the medina in marrakech was something, the one in fes is a site to behold, but not without a guide. winding skinny alleyways and dead ends at every turn.. a place where even the locals can lose their way. we sadly only had 24 hours in this amazing city, but we've vowed to return.
we had a guide direct us through the maze that is the old city of fes, stopping by to see many artisans doing their thing. so did we buy things? why yes, my friend. yes we did.
