...to Morocco, please? Yep, just for me. "Rest of the World" sounds sad and lonely.

American government classifies North Africa as part of the MidEast, so does the Beeb.

Strangely enough, several posters from Egypt still use the Africa Forum, so you may not find too many others in Morocco bothering to check your Middle East posts. Good luck, anyway.

Congratulations.

'Tis the nature of the UAE. Here today gone tomorrow.

I returned to Dubai from the UK after one Christmas with no plans to go anywhere. By April I'd moved back to the UK for a new job.

Best friend in Dubai signed a lease for a new flat a month ago. Yesterday he just got told by the company that he's being relocated to Australia.

Morocco will be fun. More real. More edgy.
