Water sellers in Marrakech.

Water sellers in Marrakech.
In local dialect these men are called Gharrib.
They carry a goat skin tar lined bag, this bag holds water. Historically these were important traders in the Desert environment, but now they cater mainly for entertainment.
Moroccans consider it to be lucky ( Barakka) to drink the water they sell, so you will see them make sales to local people.

They carry huge leather bags which are adorned with coins from around the world.
You will find them in the Djema el Fna square in Marrakech and you are guaranteed to see them on the walking tour that is an essential part of our popular Marrakech Culture Break.
