We go to Fez, Morocco where one of the oldest existing bazaars in the world is located. Each day some 2,000 people pass through the gates of Fez, some come to buy crafts, some come to sell goatskins for shoemakers, and many come simply for the cultural experience of being in an ancient marketplace. Throughout the centuries, Fez has been a crossroads for the Spaniards, the Berbers, the Arabs and the French.
