Water sellers in Marrakesh
Pull up a seat in a Marrakshi café, order yourself a mint tea and watch the parade go buy. Watersellers with red pompom hats and leather goatskins clink brass cups to attract customers. Berber women hawk fresh produce or try to lure tourists for a henna tattoo. Boys on scooters out-manoeuvre old men on donkeys and hand carts piled high with goods going to market. Young women in fashionable headscarves chat on smartphones, kebab vendors shout for custom in front of kids paying football, and tourists stand amazed at the entire scene. You’re one of them, so enjoy the show!
