I stumbled through the Medina of Fes for hours before randomly finding Suuq Dabbaghin, the Tanners' Quarter. I was lead to the top of a small terrace and given some mint to help suppress the horrendous smell of the fresh cow skins that were being prepared for leather tanning. It was quite an experience.
