Reading Test

August 13th, 2005

Dear Vicky,

         After I spent a week in Erfoud as you already know, I left for the north. I arrived in Tangiers yesterday evening. The trip was long and tiring. I took the bus from Erfoud to Meknes, and then I set up for Tangiers the same day. I met several young Moroccan people on the train and I talked to one of them. His name is Ahmed; and he was kind and friendly. These people are really hospitable and peaceful, contrary to what the media constantly try to make us understand. He invited me to visit his region situated in the South west of Morocco. He is from S'mara, a small village in the Sahara. I promised to pay him a visit next year when I come back to spend my holidays in Morocco. This Muslim country of diverse customs and traditions is exciting. I am sure you'll enjoy its marvels if you decide to accompany me next year.
