Reports and press clippings from the Tour

Join Friends of Morocco October 5-15, 2002 to visit the coastal cites of Rabat, Casablanca, El Jadida, Safi and Essouira then inland to Marrakech and back to Agadir on the coast and into the Souss Vally and the Anti-Atlas towns of Taroudant and Tafarout over 10 days by chartered bus celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Peace Corps in Morocco.  We will probably offer also an opportunity for an airline only - make your own land travel itinerary and arrangements - option that will depart the same date taking advantage of the group discount.  Return travel date flexible according to Royal Air Maroc schedules.  

The Celebration tour for 40 years of Peace Corps service in Morocco is planned for October 5-15, 2002, just before the start of Ramadan and including the Columbus Day Monday holiday.  It will cost about $1300 air and land package from New York on Royal Air Maroc.  First 25 persons for rented coach, guide, two meals per day, 4 and 5 star hotels.  Air only at a reduced price will also be available with fixed October 5 departure and optional return dates. 

Like the Moroccan-American Friendship tour, the touristic will be combined with visits with serving volunteers, meetings with Peace Corps and Embassy staff, reunion with Moroccans connected with Peace Corps and the U.S., such as the Moroccan Chapter of the University of Minnesota Alumni Association.  Like the Friendship tour where we visited a women’s shelter; the Al Akhawayn University, the American-style university in Ifrane; Parliament; Riads under transformation; and the American Language Center of Marrakech, we plan to visit former volunteer sites, see USAID development activities and tour the horticulture transformation in Agadir and Taroudant.  Details on the web site.
