May I ask you to give more details about the following claims:
1) "Morocco is all about taking away those freedoms"
You may have more freedoms than what a Moroccan person has, but did
any Moroccan try to take away your freedom ? Maybe should you think
about sharing the freedom you got with people who didn't have the
chance to have it or understand it ?
2) "Burning summer heat"
This one made me smile :)
Actually I think it would be really awesome to hold the Guadec '10 or
'11 in Morocco.
