Morocco: Giving in the Facebook

Moroccan author and blogger Laila Lalami gives in to temptation and signs up for a Facebook account.


  • It’s a Moroccan deluge! Not only the wonderful Laila blog, but all the long time favourites…My Marrakesh, The View from Fez, EatBees and The a la Menthe… are all there. Traffic from Facebook to our blog is slowly increasing so the exercise seems to be worthwhile.


    morocco is bigger than that, you should change the map, if you love morocco and you talk about morocco you should know that morocco is double bigger than that, if you don’t care about moroccan sesitiveness I advice you to talk about another country.
