    Water Men

    Around the Medina and some of the historical sites you will see men in funny looking attire with brass cups hanging off them. These are water men who supply the locals with water usually from local wells in goatskin bags. To announce themselves they ring their bells. I’m not sure that these guys are the real deal to the locals or more for the tourists as I didn’t see them selling water to anyone, more demanding a fee to have their photos taken by tourists. They can get a bit aggressive if they see you and you don’t pay up some dirhams.
