• Short Summary

    An English teenage girl is shown the traditional camel market in Marrakech.

  • Description

    Marrakech / Marrakesh, Morocco.

    Several shots show crowds of men in traditional Moroccan robes at a camel and donkey market; men are seen examining the teeth of the animals. Two water sellers wander about the crowd; one pours a cup of water for a customer.

    Teenager Gay (Gaye ?) Ashwood (standing out from the crowd as a female in western dress) we is shown around the market by a man wearing a fez; she tries to take photographs with her camera and sits on the back of a sitting camel. A small group of men crouch on the ground counting out money.
