Global Scavenger Hunt: Entranced by the Mystique of Fez, Morocco

Fez is Morocco’s third largest city, with a population of 1,275,000 – half of them in the Medina. It was under the French from 1912-1956. It was Morocco’s capital for 300 years before the French moved the capital to Rabat, on the ocean. The most remarkable part of the scene from the hilltop is how every roof of this ancient place has a satellite dish – Hamid says they were given for free by Al Jazeera. “Even a Bedouin tent in the desert will have a satellite dish.”
