... women are against gender equity in inheritance (in Morocco, women can inherit only under specific circumstances!), while 4 adults out of 5 are against abortion and homosexuality tolerance. Here, being polite is more valued than showing a critical mind. More than 3 Moroccans out of 5 would "worry" about being alone, not being married, not having children or worse, being divorced. No wonder they show a face when I say I am not married (which is false…) ...
... from a group of men that followed me to the end of the road. The last thing I heard was "Ça va Barbie?" It was ****** and distracting, as it always is. But it was also validating. I'm not lazy. I'm not under-appreciating my time here. This last week was exactly what I needed before heading back out into the city. Especially if that group of men are right, and my blonde hair is growing in again. ...
... to take a princess day and sleep ...
After 8 hours of flying over the Atlantic I arrived in Paris. I had a layover of 2 hours which I expected to spend in contemplation of a delicious French pastry per my dad's advice. But the woman who sat down next to me at the gate had other plans. She decided we were best friends and proceeded to tell me her life story and reassure me that my life was blessed by God. She was nice enough and I sympathized that things might not work out ...
... as I sat down next to her the conversation continued as follows (in Moroccan Arabic):
"You are not married?"
"No I'm not. I'm only 21."
"Do you want to get married?"
"Yes, someday in the future" (far far FAR in the future)
"My son, Karem, he works for a French bank. He wants to get married."
No words I just nod my head. What do you say to that?
"He knows six languages: Arabic, French, English, German, Spanish, Portugese and actually some Russian"
