A very beautiful trip: amazing the medina of Fez with its labyrinthine alleys where getting lost is simple, tanneries and its picturesque Suq; the Jemaa el Fna square in Marrakesh at night is a unique show that if you do not live in person is difficult to imagine, probably at night is the most chaotic place I visited, sounds, lights, colors, smells and nauseating odors that are mixed into a Dantesque hell chaos; the desert is very nice and landscapes that are constantly changing. Very interesting Kasbahs in the south and the architecture of the houses.
