There are some things about Morocco you wouldn’t expect but will hate. They have no explanations, make no sense, but they are real.
Outlets in the wall are all about four feet high. Try to plug in your phone and it’ll just hang there. There’s also only one per room, if you’re lucky.
Many Moroccans’ WhatsApp photo is a quote or stock photo of a little baby.
Moroccans’ will ask how much anything you buy costs, carrots at souk and your new iPhone included.
Buildings are usually made of cement, meaning leaning your head against the wall in winter will give you a headache from the cold.
You are automatically French if you don’t speak Arabic perfectly.
It’s rude to not visit your Moroccan friends several times a week, especially without an invitation.
Ask anyone for the time of an event, it’ll be wa7d shwiya, aka soon, aka in five minutes or five hours.
There is a .20 dirham coin that is completely useless. I get it as change when I buy a loaf of bread, but if I try to pay for another loaf of bread with it, they don’t want it.
Thanks to Pariesa and Maryam for their help with this blog post. A little last-minute fun topic after a longggg day of travel today.
