We had a great meeting in Kenifra! With the help of Peace Corps volunteer Linda Z the women formed an association and are making beautiful handmade necklaces.

When we left Kenifra we found cool bracelets in Meknes and explored the medina in Fez. Now we are in my old town of Boujad,  silkscreening a line of Mushmina t- shirts with the help of Peace Corps volunteer, Olga.  We love these shirts….thanks girls and thanks Olga, they look great!

We are here! Landed in Casablanca on Wednesday and it already feels like we have been here 2 weeks. Drank 20 cups of mint tea, discovered the garment district, traveled 5 hours to the country, and meeting with a womens association tomorrow.  Hmdulla!

Stay tuned….
