Yep, we Almost got hustled in Morocco. My cousin Alexis and I were drinking some fresh squeezed orange juice when the woman above came up to me and said, “Come on and sit down in the shade. It’s hot!” I told her we didn’t need to but she insisted.
Fine. So we sit.
As we are sitting we start chit chatting a bit about how much we are enjoying our visit and she asked if we wanted henna. We both declined but Alexis was right near the woman below and before we knew it the lady grabbed Alexis’ hand and the started doing her henna. Alexis tried to pull it away but the lady was strong and she had the design below started in like 5 seconds. I kept telling the lady to stop but both women wouldn’t listen.
I told the woman I was sitting next to that we did not want henna but I was also laughing because the henna lady was so serious and holding Alexis’ hand so tight all we could do was laugh. The speed in which she grabbed her hand and started designing was incredible! My cousin and I were stunned and Alexis kept looking at me like, “How in the world did this happen?!?!”
