Don't trust anyone

June 26, 2012

There is a certain theme running through our conversations with Moroccans, "Don't look at, speak to, or trust anyone else". This creates a problem when the people with whom you have just spoken to are held suspect by the next people you talk to. Whom do you trust?

We are confused with trying to separate what seems to be genuine Moroccan hospitality from genuine Moroccan hustling. There is no quiver in their voice. We think the people we meet want to spend time with us and like us, but we also realize they have families to feed. We are their food.
