I Would Give For Her 1,000 Camels

A quick peek at our day in Tangier.  

This silk scarf salesman, Abduhl,  had the best pick-up line I've ever heard.  

He tells my Mr. C that "Your wife has beautiful spirit. 
She is happy.  I would give to you 1,000 camels for her."   

True story.

Mr. C turned him down, though......

The shipping for livestock was prohibitive.

    1. So you know, MC, that for sure he sold me a scarf......

    2. You look gorgeous in that color Sherrie...Oh wait what am I thinking you look good in any color but especially that "Pink" I'm thinking you did good on buying the scarf...That's quite a complement 1000 camels right??? Love it!!!

  2. Thanks, JR. Didn't buy the pink one, though......But I learned how to do a turban! I think "one thousand camels" was a compliment, but.....perhaps I should be offended 'cause he thought of me as property that he could buy for the right price! Mr. C says he would never sell for one thousand. He says I'm worth at least one thousand and one camels........

    1. Ahhhh, thanks MC! The stories are the best part of the travel adventure. I figure anybody can get the checkmark ~ "I was there"; "Here's my photo in front of whatever". But the stories! The people who you cross paths with that make a story, now those are the real memories.
      You can bet that whenever I talk about Morocco, I will remember Abdul and his "One thousand camels" offer!
