Fes is a colorful, ancient, imperial city of Morocco. Amanda and I spent the day with a local guide, Fareeda, wandering through the tiny alleys and souks of this truly remarkable. Fes is old, settled in the 8th century. Hopefully the photos below will give you a taste of what this truly remarkable city is like. Keep in mind that if you click the photo you will get a larger version.
