Morocco Warnings and Dangers: 176 reviews and 133 photos

I have lost friends discussing politics. And I mean it - just questions like "What is the position of the Moroccan Royal Equestrian Club about glue sniffing 5 and 6 year olds prostituting themselves to tourists or washing up dead on the spanish coasts?" can insinuate that the King isn't doing enough. And that, my traveling friend or not-yet-clear new local, is enough to make folks who remember Hasan II's years of lead to never consider darkening your door again or share tea with you.

Why? Well, you could be a spy. You could also be seen as untrustworthy with someone's personal opinions.

This doesn't mean shut up. Not at all. It just means you have to go about searching for answers and posing the tricky questions with a respectful way. And respect someone who clearly doesn't want to talk about it with YOU (it doesn't mean it's not discussed, boo-boo.)

Listen to the music of Nas El Ghiwane if you want a good strategy to mean what you mean while not saying what you mean.
