With Mr Z’s amazing map skills, we maneuvered our way through the narrow meandering
maze of the medieval city of Fez to see the Leather Tannery.
The Leather Tannery is almost a thousand years old. I think the Moroccans haven’t changed the way they dyed leather hides since the Roman times. They soak the hides in a combination of cow urine, quicklime, water and salt – a delicious combination.
I would’ve wanted to stay in Fez longer but the Sahara Desert and Marrakesh awaits!
