There is maybe 0.1% of annoying people here in Marrakech. Unfortunately this 2000 People are set to make my Live their income. And they try hard. Very good hash is the most annoying on a long list. After Sunset i cant walk 10 meters without someone following me, trying to sell me henna as dope to smoke. Some kids are not much better. Trying to be cute, sending u of into false directions and asking for money for unwanted informations. But worst are the motorbikes. First they didnt concern me as i was thinking they know what they do. Big mistake! The souks here are small winding alleys, a bit similar like in Iran. But unlike there here motorbikes speed past me, often touching me. 3 days ago then one of them tought me flying, speeding with full speed in my back. Scince then i have to hobble trough the souks, having more time to see them weaving trough the mob with glaced eyes. And i notice how many others hobble too. A lot of Peopple here have wounds they show me, but nothing is done. When the guy drove into me the shopkeepers where really angry with him, because older People would have broken their legs. But they dont have the will to stop this madness, even tough the souks are covered and the 2-stroke engines belch their smoke into their shops. What a difference to Iran, Syria, even Egypt. And what a difference to the people i met last week. It seems almost like a different country.
