The maze like alley ways of the astonishingly large medina in Fez is one interesting place. It is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site as it is the world’s best preserved medieval city.
From the decorated patterns to the array of colors surrounding me in the medina, I am amazed! When visiting the medina, or should I say the labyrinth for first time tourists, it is fascinating to see tradespeople and craftspeople do everyday business and continue to function as they always have.
As I immersed myself in the essence of the Fez medina, I am fascinated by how locals navigate the 9000 narrow and sometimes dark and dank lanes without maps. Even children get by so easily. This bustling bazaar can be overwhelming but incredible to experience nonetheless.
As I continue my journey in Fez, I love the vivid colors and patterns that constantly surround me.
Until next time,
