I’ve been to Morocco twice, and both times I was less enamored with Marrakech, which I assumed would be my favorite part of the country, but utterly mesmerized by Fez. I’ve written a lot about Morocco for about traditional cooking lessons at a riad, shopping in Marrakech, drinking and dining in Marrakech, Fez’s historic center, my first Moroccan hammam experience [spoiler: it was a touch traumatic], and the ateliers and artisans of Fez. This time, AFK Travel asked me to put my feelings for the city to words for their #InLoveWithAfrica series, and I was happy to try to articulate what it is about Fez that captivates me so.
