Morocco, Sheep in Sale

    While working on the Eid Al Kbeer project in Morocco, I had to go see a couple of souqs in Rabat and Sale. "Souq" means market in Arabic, and in these places many different things are sold. In this case, it was a farm animals' souq, and looking for a sheep in it was harder than expected. These places offer so much variety, cows, sheep, goats, horses, etc. And even within sheep there are types, sizes and colors. There are some more expensive than others, and of course males are more valuable than females. The sellers are always excited to see people around, because it is an opportunity for business. They'll try to sell you anything, and strong negotiation skills are needed.

    So, here are the pictures of a souq in Rabat and one in Sale. I left them in color because of the sky, it was amazing that day. Enjoy!
