           Visiting Marrakech was Janet's dream*. So she insisted on her parents to take her there. Last weekend, when the twelve year-old girl's plane arrived at Menara airport, she was sure her dream has finally come true.

           She was surprised that all the monuments her teacher talked about are real. She was glad to see the Koutoubia tower, the Badie palace, and especially, especially the legendary Jamae Lafna Square where she enjoyed touching the snakes, playing with the monkeys, dancing with G'nawa and tasting the delicious typical Moroccan dishes. In the evening, and before she returned to the hotel, she accompanied her parents on a tour around the red city by coach. It was fun. She took a lot of photos, and they were all really spectacular.

           She wanted to spend a few more days in the city, but her parents were very busy. She was so excited about the wonderful Moroccan culture that she decided to prepare a PowerPoint presentation for her classmates. She liked to share the experience with them.
