Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Khalil: Asking for directions is very important when you’re travelling. Moroccans are generally very helpful to tourists in that aspect, and they will do their best to give you directions. Most taxis in Morocco don't have GPS yet, so it’s good to know these phrases to tell your driver too!
