Last Full Day

Casablanca, Morocco
Today we were given a free day to relax, pack, shop for any last-minute souvenirs or do what we need to do so we feel good about traveling home tomorrow. I can't believe it! I'm a little sad, but looking forward to being home at the same time.

Today I met a rotarian friend for coffee and this afternoon I am meeting up with a friend's family who lives in Casa . I think this is a great way to end my time here!

Yesterday we visited two rotary clubs here in Casablanca. We also got to see a library along the coast and got a small tour. Amiri, our tour guide and a cataloger at the library, was gracious enough to show us around. This library was built in 1985, but expanded in 2005. They have over 100 employees and around 100 computer terminals for public use. Wi-fi is not in there as of yet. He also said the materials can't be checked out and must stay in the library. Also, everything (purses, backpacks, etc) have to be checked in before entering. I thought this was very interesting.

Au revoire for now!
