I see Kat's point of view, but the boys could too easily have dropped the wine onto the road when clinging to the van. I could have lost both bottles! I'm going to whack them!
Regarding في صحتك (bisahatika!) which Google translates as ''good health! / cheers!", in Moroccan Arabic we say "b'sakha!", which is also used where an American would say "You're welcome!" after being thanked, so I know not the exact meaning.
Alcohol is legal in Morocco and pleasant wine is produced around Meknes, nevertheless alcoholic drinks are hard to come by - except in package tourist hotels, which are not places I enter. Big towns will have two or three discreetly signed licenced bars - dark bare drinking saloons with upright chairs and tables, men only - never within the walls of the old Arab quarter or within sight of a mosque.
Although many towns and large areas are dry of alcohol, I know where wine can be found on my travels, but one should be discreet in buying and drinking it, respecting that most Moroccans observe the religious interdict. In reality, I would not dream of asking the boys to handle alcohol, nor would they be served.
Regarding travel, in rural areas I would not have to wait long at the roadside before someone would give me a lift. In deference to my age a young man would give up his seat in the cab and clamber onto the back. I might offer the driver the equivalent of the bus fare but it would often be refused.
The official shared taxis (taxi moshtarak) squeeze in six passengers beside the driver and everybody pays the same officially set fare.TRANSPORT[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
