Morocco Odyssey 12: Fes (i)

By Shattman

For our next installment, we travel from Rabat to Fes [often incorrectly referred to as Fez]. After lunching at a local restaurant, we rode the bus up a hillside to take in spectacular panoramic view of the city [top image]; the medina has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Taken from a closer vantage point, in the lower image one can see a small local market; note the many satellite dishes on the rooftops.
