Salam dear friends,
Yesterday, my country celebrated 15 years under King Mohammed VI’s leadership 🙂 🙂 🙂
I thought of a way to express how proud I feel to be a part of this country, and so I want to share with you some of the things that make my country beautiful, charming, and worth to be on your ” to go to list” .. 🙂 😉
1)- Morocco is quite a mountainous country with the Atlas Mountains running from northeast to the southwest through the center and the Rif Mountains located in the north.
2)- Moroccan cities commonly have mosques with beautiful towers called Minarets, market areas called Bazaars, old medieval sections called Medinas and old fortresses called Kasbahs.
3)- Green tea with mint and sweetened with sugar is a popular drink in Morocco… My father is a master in preparing it 😉
4)- Even if I’m not a great fan of it, the most popular sport in Morocco is football (soccer), the Moroccan national team became the first African and Arab country to make to the 2nd round of a World Cup when they did so in 1986.
5)- The university called al-Qarawiyin was founded in the city of Fes in 859 as a madrasa (an Arabic educational institution) and is considered to be the oldest university in the world… so proud of that 😀
6)- The currency in Morocco is called the Dirham.
8)- The official languages of Morocco are Berber and Arabic. The distinctive group of Moroccan Arabic dialects are collectively called Darija. French and to a lesser extent Spanish and English are also spoken in the country.
Yes, you need more facts about the country where I was born and where I belong, but I hope what I just said was more or less enough to make you come, visit, and love Morocco 🙂
Talk to you soon Insha’ALLAH ❤ 🙂 ❤
