i want to tell you a storry.
it's difficult to tell it with the same emotions i can tell in german.
it will show, that we can decive by other peoples.
yah, i need water. hard to get, as i see.
i drive my little truck to a gas station. i look for attendant, who sells me water.
i calculate, that i must pay for this precious liquid, because it's rare here.
here is no attendant. but two men arrives now. an old crate they drive. Citroën or similar.
they ask me now, what i am seraching.
"peoples, i need water for my bidon. totaly 60 litres. and tea for the long evenings."
"follow us" says the darker one.
so i come to a restaurant called Café CTM in Boujadour, western sahara
the owner acts verry rugged and grim. he is laconic and quite unfriendly to me.
his mine is like one of an crime. hard face, dark eyes with an energy like fire.
i do not feel well. but i hope he can give me any liquid of live...
obviously he knows my desire for water. harsh he sayd: "bring me your bidons"!
and: "didn't you want any china-tea?
then he sends one of his service to the market, for buy any tea. i'm irritated. why he don't explain me, where i can buy this myself?
he tells me the price for one kilogramm. 120 DH (12€) for the first quality.
shortly after, the young man comes running and whispers anything to his chief.
the chief translates me after. he has got the tea for the purchase price of the cofee. and he gives it for the same price to me. 70DH!!!
i know, they're really not rich there. but nevertheless might be happier than we...
while this, the chief prepares us a tea, saharoui like. known as the whisky of the sahara.
more locals come here and want to look, what happens here at this place.
handshakes and multiple welcome, invitations at home etc. verry verry surprising and friendly.
normal they want to sell anything. but this time - nothing. only give love, without ulterior motives.
the bidons be filled by chief.
he has two varieties of water. one, without chlorine only for tea. and the other, preparated and durable with chlorine.
he gives my 60l of his best water. he must buy it by a truck, who comes sporadic.
the price for the water was done.
but at once, the water will cost nothing. he offers as a present!
also the tea for all who are present.
only the china tea rest for pay.
without a condition he does such a lot good to me.
happy i leave this lovely town an move on south.
a beautyfull place at the sea provides wet dreams and a car, shaked by the strong wind
closing time for today.
