So I thought I would write a final blog post for my Morocco blog. I have been home now for almost a month, after a week and a half in Egypt. It is hard to believe I left Morocco so long ago. Sometimes I have pangs of sadness, missing the people, the beauty, the life, the smells, the food...everything, but at the same time, I am thrilled to be home. I am enjoying every moment with my mom and dad, my sister, my soon to be brother-in-law, my friends, my favorite city in the world...Chi-town!

Thank you for reading my blog and taking the time to learn a little about a culture so different from our own over the past two years, and thank you for all the support for the women's center! I am blessed to have so many supportive people in my life!

One of the last pictures I took in Morocco, on the drive from my site to Tiznit.

Como supongo que todos quienes te conocen, ¡me alegro de que hayas logrado hacer tantas cosas, ayudado y aprendido tanto, y ahora regresado a casa sin problemas! Felicitaciones por todo tu trabajo y un gran abrazo desde Chile.

So sweet Erin, what an amazing job you did there! You should turn this blog into a blog book to always have the tangible memory to look back on.

See you soon!

It has been great to (silently) follow you Erin.
Being a Moroccan living abroad, any perspective from my home country, especially from its rural part, is so delightful.
If I may emit one wish: can you figure out a way of keeping this blog alive?

Hi Erin,

I've been checking in now and then on your blog. I'm heading to Casa in a couple of months...

I'm also in Chicago until then. If you're interested I'd love to sit down for a coffee and chat.

Great post. Your blog is still one of the best in Morocco. Have you been nominated for the 2011 Best of Morocco Blog Awards yet? http://tinyurl.com/36v3k4b"
