My Lucky Day, by Sankar Chatterjee

(F.F.F. Website Story)

I was navigating the labyrinth of narrow streets in the old Medina in Fez, Morocco with Hassan, who operates Adrar Travel.

I asked Hassan, “Is there anything that one can’t find in one of these historic stores?”

Hassan, with a mysterious smile, replied “Not really! If you are lucky, there might even be a camel-head ready for you somewhere.”

I took his jab and turned a corner when I heard Hassan’s voice: “Your lucky day, Sankar.”

There it was, in a corner meat-shop, next to a fruit-shop, hanged the head of a camel, being sacrificed that day for human consumption!
