Tour of Fez’s Medina – جولة في مدينة فاس

Last Sunday we went on a guided tour of the Fez medina.

We started the tour at the Bab Boujaloud…

passed the water clock

peeked into the university of Al-Karaouine…

visited a communal oven

observed men working in a tannery…

checked out the river that runs through Fez…

and even stopped to have our picture taken at a textile workshop.

About Laura McAdams

Laura McAdams is a Master’s student at University of Pennsylvania studying International Educational Development. Her experience in the MENA region includes 15 months as a Fulbright student researcher to Fez and Ifrane, Morocco in 2010 and 2011. Her project was interested in understanding the disconnect between the policies of technology usage in education and the reality of how these policies unfold in the classroom. Summer 2012 she returned to the Middle Atlas mountains of Morocco to work with a women’s weaving cooperative. She is excited to learn more about other countries in the MENA region and issues involving education policy and reform, technology usage in curriculums and gender equality in education. One of Laura’s lifelong goals is to one day be able to sit down and leisurely read a newspaper in Arabic.

    Great pictures of Fez. I’m so glad you are having such a wonderful experience. Greet your Fez family from me.

  5. nice! We saw the tanneries in our documentary of Morocco. Amazing and a little gross but still cool. I love all the different colored pools. Also, you’re showing a bit too much arm Laurs, and LEG. Making me uncomfortable. Also, we have the same purse! How did that happen. We don’t like anything that’s the same!
