Here are some photos from our trip so far:
Photo 1: The group with Fatima Sadiqi, a professor of linguistics and gender studies. She talked to our group for two hours about Islam, gender relations in Morocco, and current events. She is the founder of the Center for Studies and Research on Women and the Gender Studies Program at Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdellah University in Fez as well as the International Institute for Languages and Cultures.
Photo 2: The view of the old city (medina) in Fez from the top of our hotel (riad), where we ate breakfast each morning.
