I love the country but I don’t like the people.

– Moroccans about Morocco

Moroccans love the land but not the people who inhabit it because Morocco is a corrupt country, at least according to Moroccans I talk to. Quite unfortunate, I think.

Busy day. Chatty day.

I worked in the office. I put together World AIDS Day kits. I met with the new Programming and Training Officer today to discuss the Diversity training for the current PCTs. I talked to the CD.

After paying my hotel bill at the Villeda, I found myself in a conversation with the son of the hotel owner. In Spanglish, literally, we discussed politics, growing up Chinese-American, the origins question, Moroccans’ opinions of Morocco – love the country, dislike the people – and the culture, the English language and globalization. I love communicating in different languages, even more when more than one language is being used to communicate.
