One of the things that you should not pass up in Fez, Morocco is leather. One of the big tourist attractions in Fez is the leather factory in the old city. Winding through the city by yourself can be challenging but there is always a local Moroccan willing to help you find the factory for a small fee. As you walk into the factory, you are handed some mint. At first you might not know why but as you walk up the stairs you slowly realize it is to help cover the smell of the factory. This photo was taken from the balcony overlooking the production part of the factory in October 2010.
