The Fes medina was a labyrinth of narrow corridors that snaked forward and sideways and this way and that way as far as the eye could see.

Decided to walk around and find food. Found a nice poshy place near Narwarma to sit and use the internet, hmmm, for free. This is why this is my first written entry of the trip. Later decided that I was only 3 days away from returning to Asian cuisine and should not buckle now. ...
