comment What is the business model of commercial free walking tours?
I assume Sandeman's also must get kickbacks from their mid-tour coffee stop and from ending up the tour at a pub.

comment How important is it to obtain Swiss Francs before arriving in Switzerland?
One of the benefits of going on a bus tour is that you don't have to worry about this kind of thing. You won't be the first or last to ignore the instructions in the booklet.

comment Taking dried food into another country through customs
Also, in my experience the customs / agriculture folk tend to be fairly indifferent when they realize the only reason you are talking to them is because you were overly literal in your reading of the form. An attitude of "Are you sure that's all you have? Ok, whatever, go ahead."

comment When traveling to a country with a different currency, how should you take your money?
I like to have some kind of safety net, after realizing that I was traveling in foreign countries with exactly one source of cash, my ATM card. So now I make sure to have a bit of US cash, for instance a hundred dollar bill that can be changed at a bank, and a second credit or ATM card that I know the PIN for. It doesn't need good rates since it will only be used in an emergency, and I do not keep it with my primary ATM card.

Tried to make less subjective by replacing "best choice" with "viable choice"

comment What are the rules surounding alcohol in Morocco
Yes, the only place I saw alcohol sold was at the hotel bars and restaurants, but we didn't go to any supermarkets. I think you would have a tough time finding it anywhere if you stay in the medina.
