As you live there, are you trying to sell tours?

Abdelaziz......are you a Moroccan guide? if so have you got a guide's licence?... if not you are operating illegally and can be arrested by the tourist police , there is another consideration, if you are not licensed you are depriving honest licensed guides out of earning their living to put food on the table for their families.

My granddaughter just spent her winter break in Morocco. She took some killer photos, but she said she underestimated how cold the dessert would be at night. (She's from Miami, but she goes to school in RI)

The standard two letter designation for the states in the USA have been in effect since 1963 (over 56 years). All North American readers and most people who have traveled to this region should be familiar with them. Rhode Island is actually an abbreviation for the actual state name which is State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations

In any case I knew when I wrote it that some people might not know what RI signified, but since this is apparently a drive-by thread, with no response from the OP, no real information or conversation, I decided not to worry about it.

To get back on track, a wall of silence prevails from Abdelaziz, so it looks like a guilty plea by default, he is probably hiding under his camel awaiting the arrival of the feared Brigade de Tourisme.
Other travel websites including Tripadvisor and Lonely Planet are regularly infested by Moroccan false guides, touts, and street hustlers , some are more adept at disguising their identities and contrived motives than others, but Abdelaziz is just a beginner, hopefully his post will remain intact as a point of reference for future readers.

LOL

My parents went to Morocco one summer c 1965 as part of a bus tour of Spain and Portugal. They were told that the bus would have A/C and it did not. My mother was furious that the travel company had misled her. Also apparently the guide was less than optimally informative. I had done library research using travel books and had written letters to her with descriptions of things that she might be seeing in Spain and Portugal (where I had been the previous year), and apparently my letters were better than what the guide was giving them so my mother took the mike over and read my letters to the people on the bus. I don't think I did anything on Morocco as I had not been there myself.
