Drumming up some business

Drummer at the entrance of Sala Colonia, Rabat, Morocco

On our visit to the ancient Roman ruins of Sala Colonia in Rabat, Morocco, we were greeted by this drummer at the entrance of the walled fortress. He was drumming up some business, and when he saw me taking his photo, he expected some payment. Although our guide gave him some tips, I am sure by the look of him that he expected more from individuals, especially photographers.

I guess it was a little mean-spirited of me not to give a token amount. I hope he was satisfied with the offerings of several others on our tour group.
