I am a teacher at an American school in Casablanca, Morocco, and have just graduated from college in the U.S. I spent last summer and fall in Morocco studying Arabic in Rabat and then enrolling in Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane as an exchange student. The last time I was in Morocco, I learned valuable lessons such as how to make juice out of bananas and avocados and how to relax and not worry that nothing seems to happen on time. I started eating meat after seventeen years of vegetarianism, and fasted during Ramadan to better understand the meaning of the holy month. This time around, I hope to improve my language skills, both speaking and teaching, and to start showing up late to things myself.
Morocco Mall, the biggest mall in Africa
(You can tell it’s fancy because it has trees growing on the inside)
If you are unfamiliar with the movie Casablanca, the title and byline are references to quotes from the movie 🙂
