One thing to note, though, is that the Western Sahara (starting about the bottom of Kansas and roughly the size of Colorado) is a disputed area*.  Due to the sensitive nature of this area, I will not be commenting further – but feel free to do some research of your own to find out more.  Moroccan World News is a great resource.

Want to know things like population, language and religion? Go here!

*The Peace Corps does not place volunteers in the Western Sahara

About alicrain

Wanderlust. Adventurer. Mom. Mentor. Change Agent. Crazy. Servant Leader. Citizen of the World These are all words that describe me - or have been used to describe me. There are many more but we won't get in to those. What is important to know is that at the age of 45, after having a successful career and raising a son, I decided I needed a new challenge and adventure in my life. So I joined the Peace Corps. Portions of this blog were written before this time and chronicle my life during graduate school (again, something I did in my 40s). During my service in Morocco (September 2016 - December 2018) I chronicled my daily life and all it entailed to live as an American female in another country. this is a place for me to capture random thoughts and share my life's journey
