If any sound especially intriguing to you, lemme know and I'll write those first. I do take requests. :)
In the same vein, during a chat-conversation, my sister recently asked me to write some posts reflecting on things I've learned over the past two years. Since that's an awfully big (and vague) request, I asked her to be more precise. Here's her list. Again, if there are any that you especially want to read, be in touch (via email or hitting the comments button), and I'll tackle those first.
Her: I think that covering up women is a sign of repression. I'll fight for a woman's right to dress as she sees fit, but I would prefer that women don't veil themselves at all.
Me: I used to completely agree with you, but I see more layers to it now (no pun intended)
Her: interesting. that sounds like it would make a good blog entry.
Her: I know that you have a lot of finishing up stuff to do, but you might think about at least writing notes about stuff that you know now that you 'thought' you knew before and your new perspective is very different
Me: gimme ideas
* veiling for women
* sexual harassment - how it's different for foreign women - how it's different btw large cities and the bled
* in general, the thousands of ways that the bled is different from the big cities
* when folks visit Morocco, they usually never leave the big cities, so even though they might travel around the world, they'll just see the European front that Morocco shows Westerners. Morocco absolutely has European-like cities, but it has many more places that are totally unique
* feral dogs and how 'pets' are treated, in general
* how MANY women are totally deprived of schooling
* and how that's slowly changing
* what folks can do to help (if they're so inclined)
* which NGOs are helping and which are not, & why
