I had never understood it before.
Morocco's city of Fez.
Its alleyways had seemed strange and uninviting.
Its people had seemed cold and imperious.
Its treasures had been somehow hidden to me.
Fez had held me at arm's length. And although I longed to love it, I never could.
But suddenly with a new guide, I had new eyes.
And (oh, yes!) I saw its charms, its allure, its thousand year old beauty...
And yes, its inviting nature....
And there were the beginnings of a thousand year old mystery revealed.
