TANGIER
Petit Socco

Tangier, Morocco

The Petit Socco in the medina must be the 100 square metres of Tangier with the worst reputation. Right here, drug deals are made, human smuggling planned and prostitution performed.
But after sitting there in a coffee shop (from where I made this photo) for two hours, trying to spot any of these activities, I had to give up: The youths behind me had been discussing nothing but football, and the guests in the pension on the photo had been nothing but men, even if it is supposed to be Tangier's most well-known brothel.
