The King of Morocco holds vast executive and legislative powers, especially over the military, foreign policy and religious affairs. The king can issue decrees called dahirs which have the force of law. He can also dissolve the parliament after consulting the Prime Minister and the president of the Constitutional court. King Mohamed VI announced a series of reforms that would transform Morocco into a constitutional monarchy. (can be added)


Morocco’s economy is considered a relatively liberal economy. Morocco has become a major player in African economic affairs, and is the 5th African economy by Gross Domestic Product (Purchasing Power Parity).

four wheel drive hugged the coast on the trip south
atlantic ocean on the right
sahara desert on the left
once upon the destination the wind off the water blew us off our trajectory even though its known as the windy city all reports make this seem unusual
the beach sandblasts your skin raw & gets into every crevice in my camera
the passing caravan of camels is designed for this weather but it hurts me
the annual gnaoua music festival has attracted record numbers & crowds fill the medina all night a city elder claimed the gods cursed the town with gale tempest whenever so many outsiders invade
