Salaam Alaykum!!! The highlight of our trip has definitely been our homestay at the medina in Fes. We stayed with a family of five and the daughter Senae luckily speaks spanish so we were able to practice with her. on our last night she took us through the medina and led us through the area where her family shops away from the beaten path. we were able to meet and bargain with a family friend who owned a store and after talking for a while the fourth call to worship sounded from the minaret and the shop owner took us along with Senae to see the mosque where he worships. on the way out we ran into a few relatives... we were able to gain a new perspective on the community by shedding our backpacks and experiencing the streets with an local.this morning it was very hard to leave such a wonderful host family from who we learned so much. we will not easily forget these past few days in Fes and will definitely be keeping in touch!!!
