This week I will be reporting a few of my segments from Casablanca. On July 5, I will be giving you a more in-depth report on TravelTalkRADIO with special guests from the US Embassy and Moroccan business and tourism specialists.

The masthead this week is a photo I shot on the way to lunch today, it is warm, the sun is shining and the citizens of Casablanca are enjoying a beautiful day with their families.
Our lunch was one of the most incredible spreads I have witnessed. Asia Garden restaurant founders Rafi and Chen were on hand to share their history and their delicious cuisine.

Only four days in this beautiful setting is not enough, but I shall return and I hope you will consider putting the magic of Morocco on your list of 'must go to places'.

While in Casablanca, I stayed at the renown Golden Tulip Hotel where I enjoyed the sunset over the Atlantic in the evenings. During the day I presented to the impressive organization of  the Association of Moroccan Professionals in America. I also was in the capital of Rabat where I met the acting American Ambassador, Robert Jackson and US Embassy Public Relations specialist, David Ranz. You will meet them both very soon.

If there was one thing that I could convey about Morocco, is that Moroccans enjoy a wonderful love affair with the US. Since 1777, they were the first to proclaim the US as a sovereign nation. And we should forget their incredible loyalty to their friends during WWII.

Morocco is a rich culture, full of life, love and at the heart of this exotic and romantic community are the people who are warm and welcoming.

Is it possible for giant, airborne whirligigs to power remote island resorts and destinations? Perhaps even ultimately power the entire planet and save mankind from global warning, or worse?

Africa, Inc.
Stephen Hayes,
President of the Corporate Council of Africa
The Chinese truly are brilliant. They are investing heavily in Africa, undertaking huge infrastructure builds and erecting manufacturing plants. And just how will all this activity possibly help to relieve population pressures in China? Listen here for the stunning (yet simple) answer.

The Chinese Way
Christina Huo
, General Manager, China One Call
Never again will you have to say, “Sorry, I don’t speak Chinese!” or for that matter, if you are Chinese, you never have to say "I don't speak English" With technology as simple as a cell phone combined with a staff of brilliant and savvy interpreters, ChinaOneCall unlocks the linguistic mysteries of the Middle Kingdom for both leisure and business travelers alike.

Post Katrina Elegance
Tod R. Chambers, Roosevelt Hotel General Manager

First opening in 1893, this hotel was eventually named for Teddy Roosevelt and survived for more than a century. Then there was Katrina. $150M later,  the grandeur and elegance of Canal Street is at the Waldorf-Astoria level. And check out the new signs and skyline!  Continued.
