Les Gazelles, vous voulez un tapis

The carpets are, of course, very tempting. Just hanging around a shop for too long suggests that you are obviously in a buying mood and all attempts to refute this fact are useless. If you say that you have no money, the wiley shop keeper will reassure you that they take visa. If you lament the size of the item and the difficulty in getting it home, they with squish it up into a little package 'see see, very small' There is no use fighting. I bought a carpet during the first day that I was in Marrakesh, then had to lug it around for the rest of the trip...but I also got to grin at shop keepers and declair "No thanks, I already bought one!"
