Morocco

Morocco: Land of Contrasts - A Travelogue


Thursday October 19, 2017
7:00 PM
Join us for an evening of stories and photography as we learn about a fascinating and ancient culture.

The North African country of Morocco is 99% Muslim and yet continues to be a good friend of the United States.  Morocco, a constitutional monarchy, survived the Arab Spring which affected its neighboring countries through accommodations on the part of its king. It is a beguiling land with lovely coastlines, mountains, and desert. Americans are welcome, Moroccans are friendly, and the food is appealing. 

Join us for a travelogue by local resident Mark Rochkind who visited in 2013 and again in 2016. A mysterious and enchanting place is revealed in his captivating exploration of this North African nation.
