12/47.- Marrakech, Wall gate


Travelers visiting Marrakech are bound to be be harassed. "Unofficial" tourist guides offer their services throughout the Medina. They try to guess which nationality visitors are from, and then ask them if they need a guide to find a Mosque, a Madrasa or the medieval dye pits. Just say "No Thank you" (or "la shukran", in Arabic).

Whenever you feel lost, or in need for directions, ask someone working in one of the shops. Sellers are usually very helpful. One of them even accompanied me two or three streets. Unlike the "unofficial" guides, people in shops will never ask you for a tip.
