After this happened twice, I found a solution to this as well as the hustlers: pretending to not understand a word of English (or really anything) while being completely and utterly clueless. For the entire day, I confounded hustlers riding on donkeys, camels, horses, self-proclaimed guides, "watchmen", many a child hustler, stamp salesmen, etc..., with this tactic. Every time ...

They were all going out for dinner together, and Hani invited us along, so we went for a walk with them, which ended up being quite a long walk to ...
