And , good to see that at least in some place in the world, progress is not moving at such ridiculous speeds as it does here in the Northern European madhouse....

I´m not sure of that. Morocco is growing very quickly. There is a long way but they are each time closer to Europe.

I´ve got an old issue of National Geographic Magazine, march, 1932 with many pics and I plan to repeat these pics nowadays. I´ll tell you.

With the amount construction going on (roads and housing) they'll be catching up with Europe. Also the cost of living will be similar. Talked about this with a friend (French) living in Tarodant and he thought it would take ten years.
If the military decides they've had enough and the king is dethroned, it could come to a halt. But he is popular with Moroccans and they like the change they see. I think corruption is the main issue.
Let's enjoy it while it lasts. An old berber in Agdz told me that Morocco may change, but the Draa Valley will always remain the same.
What do you think?

Yes, if the country grows as in the last ten years they can catch us. But there are great diferences: poor people are very poor and rich people is very rich. Anyway there is an emerging medium class. I do not know about economics but I think this growth is solid.

You have said: enjoy it while it last and it´s the true. I often visit "my moroccan family" at Agdz and ten years ago we enjoy very much trying to comunicate under the light of a candle for hours but nowadays they lie in front of the TV...

Sorry but my english is very limited
