<font face='Arial' color='#008000'><b>When you take an organized day tour into the Kasbah you are going to be taken to a carpet salesroom. The sales pressure is not great until you show an interest -- then watch out!!<p></p>

That's my wife on the left in this pic, prepping herself for the show. She hoped to buy a carpet; she bargained hard, but couldn't get the salesman down to her price. She was on her way out the door and our guide provided a little assistance and got her carpet for her at her price -- just under half of the original asking price.<p></p>

Makes you wonder.... <p></p>

<i>But it is a very nice carpet, excellent quality and marvellous colours!!
