Cheap Americans

Fes, Morocco
September 2014

Tonight two Americans tried to haggle with Mr. Said, the guest house manager, to give them a room for eighty dirham. Eighty dirham is less than ten dollars. Dar Bouanania is a good, economical guest house, but it’s not a cheap dive.

I sympathize with the travel on the cheap mentality, but that’s messed up. “Cheap ass American.” I apologized to Mr. Said for my countrymen.
