Welcome to Rabat, the capital of Morocco.  Follow the signage to the souk- covered market!

Only private school students get to ride the school buses!  Public school students have to walk or ride public transporatation. Some boys drive motorcycles or mopeds.  Younger students have their parents drive them.
The first and last things I did in Morocco was drink mint tea.  Cafes are really popular for  men- but I went there too! Here I am with Simohammed and Steve a math teacher from New York.
Mint tea is the drink of Morocco.  It's hot and sweet and poured into narrow glass cups.
The cookies are almond and pistachio, delicious!
Here is "my" school, the Lycee Othane Ibnou Affane.Classes got from 8 to 12 every morning then the kids go home for lunch from 12- 2 PM. Afternoon classes are from 2 to 6 PM. Phew!
High School students in Morocco work very hard.  They take important test which they have to pass in every subject in order to go to college. A lot of the girls where lab coats or djellebahs over their street clothes to protect them.
Simohammed, my Moroccan co-teacher and I got along great.  He is a very hard working English teacher.
He was a great teacher about Moroccan culture and a wonderful tour guide of Casablanca!
