Transcript of Morocco
The Moroccan flag was officially adopted on November 17, 1915. On the Moroccan Flag the green pentagram is also known as Solomon's seal. This represents Ishtar the mother goddess of Muslims. The five pointed star in the center represents the connection between God and the country. The color red represents the successors of prophet Mohammed.

Freedom: The Story of my Second Life
By: Malika Oufkir
In the story Freedom, Malika learns to function like the people of the outside world while learning to believe in herself.
While adapting to the outside world Malika falls in love with a man named Eric who helps her overcome her fears.
In my opinion Malika is a very strong and courageous woman for going on with life and not giving up even after her time in prison.
One of the many challenges Malika faced was the automatic sinks in the restroom. Malika could not figure out how to turn on the sink so she watched other people while they were washing their hands so she could determine how to turn on the sink. Eventually she tried putting her hands under the sink and her first thoughts were that the sink was magical.
Malika Oufkir is the author of the books "Stolen Life: Twenty Years in a Desert Jail." and "Freedom: the Story of my Second Life." She wrote these non-fiction books so that she could tell about her life in prison and what happened to her when she got out.
Marrakech is Morocco's main attraction. It is located at the foot of the atlas mountains. There are many things to see and do there including going to the central square of Djemma el Fna, Marjorelle Gardens, and Saadian Tombs.
Fes is the most complete medival city of the Arab world. Fes is a mixture of medival meets the modern world. Some other attractions include Merenid tombs, the Royal Palace and the Jewish quarters.

Essaouira is a wonderful place to go to get away from the heat and busy cities. The highlights of Essaouira are walking down all the narrow streets and seeing the red and blue houses, the ramparts, and visiting the beach.
Moroccan women traditionally dress as shown above in conservative dresses called djellaba. These dresses are loose, hooded, long, and full-sleeved. Also they wear high heeled sandals.
In Morocco if you are invited to a Moroccan's home for dinner you should bring a small gift such as sweet pastries, nuts, or dates. This is seen as a token of respect. Also after the meal you will be urged to take more food as a sign of hospitality and you should take the food offered because it is considered rude if you do not.
In Morocco it is customary to take lots of time when greeting someone. When greeting a friend or colleague it is customary to kiss both of there cheeks while shaking hands. If you are meeting someone for the first time a simple hand shake will do, and you should stay an arms length away while having conversation. Also men should hold the hand of their male friends and any family members; the same is true for women.
Life in Prison
Malika spent 26 years in a prison for a crime that she had nothing to do with. Her father had attempted to assassinate the King and was put to death while her mother, siblings and herself were all put into a prison with little to eat and no freedom at all. Eventually after those 26 years of torture they were released into the outside world.
