Journal Entry:
Got in to Fès at 4:30 in the morning. Hung out at the bus station until about six. Realized that we will have been gone five nights and only two of them will be in hotels so I decided screw it we deserve a nice hotel and off to the Sheraton we go. Unfortunately (fortunately?) the cost was more than twice what the guide book said and I couldn't bring myself to do it. Tried about five hotels but none would let us check in until 10 or 11. Finally ended up sleeping in the lobby of a hotel until they found us a room. Once we had a room ended up sleeping until after noon.

After so much sitting we decided to do the long walk to the medina Fès el Jedid. We got a little lost, but accidentally ended up wandering to the gate I was looking for. Had an early diner (pastilla - or course - for me). Explored the medieval streets until after dark then took a taxi back to the hotel. Read for a while then early to bed.
