In Morocco, everyone are working. Except for the mothers with their up-to-two-year-old children on the streets begging for money, it seems everyone in Morocco really are working.

Usually instead of begging people call their activities work. We don’t even have to talk about the numerous street-sellers here. Even though there’s really hundreds of people working in this „industry” on every street. Selling watches, perfumes, sunglasses, cleaning your shoes.

In many cases the „service” industry might be the biggest. „Service” to help you find the correct bus, service to help you get to the correct bus ticket office, service to help you find the right way, service to help you find a taxi, service to....and so on.

And it seems everyone are working together here. And it seems they are meant to. The bus stations are usually away from the center of the towns so in order to get to and from the bus station you need to take a taxi. There’s usually no street signs so in order to find something it’s again easier to find a taxi or a guide. And so on.

Now that was a small post, but why not.
