Stories from the Somerville-Tiznit Sister Cities Delegation (part 6)

Part of a continuing series on Karen and Jason's trip to Morocco with 28 other people from Somerville...including Mayor Joseph Curtatone.
Good morning. Knowing how many people have been excited by the Somerville-Tiznit Sister Cities project, I am chagrined that I have not had time to post more about the trip. However, Jason and I were just interviewed along with four other participants from the delegation on Somerville Art Matters. Our host, Julia Fairclough, managed to slip footage from the gala in Tiznit and from Moroccan television in between chats with us. Thanks to everyone at Somerville Cable Access TV who helped produce this segment and put it up on the web so that we could share it with folks beyond the area.
To comply with recent legislation regarding blogging, I should mention that my trip was sponsored by University of the Middle East project, The U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs in concert with Sister Cities International, the City of Somerville, the City of Tiznit and the Moroccan American Cultural Center. Readers should know that my experiences would not be typical for anyone else.
