    Loved reading this as I am travelling to Morocco in November. Can you tell me anymore about the country. Is it safe etc…what is your opinion of the people?

      Hi Pam,

      I’m afraid that this entry was posted over two years ago, and I don’t think that anyone but the blog mod (i.e. yours truly :)) is going to see this comment and your enquiries. Why don’t you ask the expats of our InterNations Morocco Community?

      Generally speaking, I’ve found Lonely Planet and the US State Department website very helpful for travel safety tips, though I must admit that I’ve never been to Morocco.

    Thanks Paul, appreciate your commenting and the interesting tidbit of info concerning summertime clocks. Would it be something like Day Light Savings Time?
    Cheers, Valentina

    Nice story and article, really enjoyed reading your style of writing.

    Just one more thought that i would have added was that clocks tick differently in the same country too… that is, that during the summertime period, up until Ramadan, the government introduces summertime with the clocks changing by one hour. However, eventhough most schools, offices, airlines, trains and “official” offices work on the new time, most individuals operate on the “old” non summertime time, making life even more confusing. When you arrange to meet someone at 11am, it could be 11am summertime time or 11am GMT or of course, 11am sooner or later.
    The reason for this is that most people live their lives by the time of prayer, which doesnt change even when the clocks change. But anyway, i look forward to your next post, very interesting writing.
