Colorful Fes


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.
