people in Marakech

This water man was the most cheerful and charming man, would you look at his smile.  The watermen ring their bells to announce their arrival.  I guess they make their living these days from tourist taking photos, but who could resist...

I am not sure the 'tooth puller' still earns his living pulling teeth, but he had a huge pile of teeth and dentures.  His own teeth were perfect and I have no doubt he sees a standard dentist regularly.  He was another perfectly charming character.
I don't like the way animals are used to entertain humans, but couldn't resist sneaking a pic of this baby monkey wearing his nappy.  This city is incredibly clean. 

I hope you are not bored yet as I haven't even started sorting the photos of the art and architecture, maybe tomorrow

Nope, not bored at all, looking forward to the next instalment and to a catch up in person maybe once Christmas is out of the way? You were missed on Wednesday. You must have lots of inspiration for future work.

"Please, sir, may I have some more?"

No way can you bore us with photos from faraway places with strange sounding names.
