Personal highlights

  1. Fes: one of the four imperial cities - probably with the most Arabs
  2. Bab Bou Jeloud: weird gathering of young sales guys at the blue gate
  3. Al Quaraouiyine: the oldest functioning university in the entire world!
  4. Riads for sale: pretending to buy a riad and building a Digital Nomad hub
  5. Journey: getting lost by randomly walking around narrow streets within the city
