Meknes...
Sunday I went to Meknes for the day, a city which is only one hour by bus from Fez. Meknes is one of the imperial cities in Morocco, though is the least touristed. It was a nice day trip, but the palace itself is behind really large walls. The trip wasn't helped by some extreme heat, which lead to a lot of time spent in a park laying on the grass under a date palm tree, and in an air conditioned restaurant.

I went to Sabul Assalam school in Fez, which is way out in the new city (very far from the medina where I was living).
