Year in Review
So here we are near the end of 2011. A year marked by protests and revolution in North Africa and the deaths of Osama Bin Laden and Moammar Gadhafi. It also brought constitutional reforms to Morocco rescinding some of King Mohammed VI's power and granting freedom of expression and social equality for women. It has been an amazing time to live among the change happening in this part of the world.
Now that the holidays are approaching, I am going to take a couple weeks off writing to enjoy what will be our last Christmas in Africa. So, I'm leaving you with 10 of my favorite posts of 2011.
I'll be back with lots of stories in 2012. Happy Holidays to you and yours! And as always, thanks for reading!
