April 29 – Morocco Shocked

Yesterday, on 28th of April, Marrakech was shocked by a blast that was detonated in the Argana Restaurant near the Jemaa El Fna. From our perspective in Fes, Morocco was working so hard to maintain a positive image with all the unrest in the region. The bomb blast obviously is another setback.

We actually had clients in Marrakech on the day and others traveling there…they continued with some fear — but it turned out to be ok. We have had a number of emails and phone calls from clients asking about the safety…

My Moroccan friends are upset by the incident and telling me that Morocco is working hard for security. They are confident that it will continue to stand firm even though this has happened. We are praying that this is the truth.

Should you still visit Morocco? We are watching the next few days to see if there is any other action — hopefully this is a one off event. We would encourage you to take your time and decide for yourselves…
