    ... temple, with only the columns remaining
    - The remains of the basilica, with an arched entranced exterior wall
    - The Arch of Caracalla (aka the Triumphal Arch)
    - The remains of the baths, including an ancient restroom complete with toilet seats carved out of the stone.

We visited another mosque which was amazing and detailed as ever then after some mint tea we made our way down the the tannery, let me tell you i could smell it before we found it. Oh god it was bad, an old man handed us a sprig of mint as we walked in and here i was wondering what that was for but as we climbed up about 5 floors and came to the roof terrace it became abundantly clear! they use pigeon poo and ammonia to ...

If that's the case then Lauren has picked the correct order for this holiday.

    We made it to Fez with enough time to shower and head to dinner. This was another exorbitant meal, but the ...

    ... look around her to see she was being suitably admired. Harsh flat American accents betrayed the origin of these amazingly brittle people.

    It was all rather extraordinary - and in a bizarre way, very entertaining. Were we really in the old medina of Fes and what were we doing here?

    So...I can now say that I have been to AFRICA! My friends and I boarded our RyanAir flight early in the morning yesterday and landed in Fez, Morocco after a really two hour flight. Once we converted our euros to durams (their currency), and went through customs to get our passport stamped we were greeted by a man from our hostel who we had scheduled to pick us up and take us to our hostel.
