The orientation week for the Peace Corps has been tiring. We have full schedules everyday (except today–that’s how I explored Rabat). The pictures should be below. I have three more days in this city until I head off to the Atlas Mountains to start my Pre-Service training….which includes some extreme 4-hours a day language training. I already got a hold on basic Moroccan Arabic. I hope I can continue making this kind of progress.
I finally found an Internet Cafe that has stable internet. I was able to Skype with my whole family plus my girl. It’s been great to catch up with everyone after a week with sketchy internet. I hope you enjoy the photos. I am going to continue posting old writings while I get settled here in Morocco. In honor of President Obama’s second inauguration here is a piece about the Presidential Election of 2004. Enjoy my first attempts at political writing (from back when I was 15).
