MARRAKECH TRAVEL

I am missing something about Morocco and it bothers me on a daily basis, I can not understand what is below the surface in this country. Maybe the reason is because of the lack of actually talking or communication with Morocco people or other travelers has made it difficult.



In Essaouira I took a long walk outside the Medina and lived outside the Medina for a day. In Tangiers for a few days I lived outside the Medina so my life was mingling with the normal people. In Essaouira and now in Marrakech I am having trouble separating from what you could call the Tourist provider class of people.



What theā€¦?

I went off on a tangent as I do normally and go make or collect information on various subject. Here is the tangent or the offshoot of what I have been working on for the last hour, not on the blog, but now I will publish it both in the blog and within my normal page of HoboTraveler.com

Too Many Tourist!

I am a traveler and a tourist, in the end unless I stop and live in

a place I am a tourist, that does not normally go on tours.



After traveling a few years I have started to become

very annoyed with the repetitious nature of tourist and travelers as

they move in herds of cows or like lemmings following the one in front

of them to drop into the sea.

This is about tourist clusters, and my goal of learning and applying my

knowledge so I do not know, therefore I hopefully will not forget to

leave the social confines of the tourist clusters.

Solution:



Normally if you walk in a straight line 10 to 20 block from any location

you will walk outside the tourist area. Note, if a person is

recommending a place, 99 percent chance that is a tourist location,

there are two ways to go outside the tourist areas.

ONE

To randomly travel 20 block or randomly move. To have a destination in

mind is by mental propensity a desire to go where the others tourist

would go, we naturally and socially want to be with people of similar

backgrounds, or culture therefore the process of leaving the other

tourist is uncomfortable and foreign behavior socially.

TWO

Accidents do happen



WARNING



1. If your friend knows of the place, it is likely you did not go

outside the tourist areas.



2. Asking a taxi driver to take you outside the tourist area is way

outside the mental considerations of a taxi driver, as there goal is to

take you where you want to go, and 99 percent of the time a tourist is

going to a tourist area. If you want to go outside, tell the driver to

go straight and when you feel uncomfortable get out of the taxi.



3. Speaking English or other foreign language is not common outside of

tourist areas, although in University settings and some countries like

the Netherlands you can find that English is common.

TOURISM CENTERS

There is normally a tourism center in a city where

there are clusters of Hotels and Restaurants in close proximity. The

can be two or three of these clusters.



1. Old city group



2. New city group



3. Specialty tourism centered around a specific

attraction or area.



4. The whole city may be dependent upon tourism.
