Navigating the crowd

My Best Shot

October 14, 2007

Walking through the old town neighborhood of Tangier, Morocco, near the kasbah, I was bombarded by a swarm of street peddlers trying to sell bracelets, cotton frocks and stacks of fezzes. This is not an uncommon practice because tourism is a leading source of income. After moving on, I turned around to see three young girls, hand-in-hand, walking home from school. Tourists are not strangers to them as they weave through the crowded cobbled streets.
