Is that a camel hanging there?

Street vendor in Meknes, Morocco

Street vendors like the one above in Meknes are a common sight in many towns and cities in Morocco. The visitor – and locals – usually do not have far to walk far to find what they need to buy.

And just around the corner was a compact shop selling just threads. The colourful display (see photo below) means that almost any colour was available.

By way of amazing contrast, nearby was a butcher shop, shown in the third photo today (see below). Yes – that is a camel’s head hanging there. Not sure how one would cook that to eat it – perhaps it was merely a ploy to attract customers and wasn’t for sale. I wasn’t game to ask our guide for fear of making an almighty blunder and cause some kind of offence.

It was just one more fascinating sight in this wonderful place called Magical Morocco.
