sally the camel

Fezna, Morocco

This day was another intense day of culture shock. Instead of cows hanging in the markets, there were camels..full on camel heads.

So intense.
Our tour guide brought us to several shops where we could buy rugs, steel, and spices. Very cool, very cheap for what it was, but still really expensive.
There were also quite a few girls in our group that got..proposed to? Ha, for example… ‘working husband for you, you spend my money’ haha and my favorite ‘I will give you 1000 camels and a House if you be my wife’
We were told that people trade women for Houses and camels…so bizarre.. that was also very eye opening…the way women are treated there. Just so different, they basically have no rights to anything. Even just observing while on the bus, all the cafes had ONLY men sitting outside, there were very few women seen on the streets.
