Hello , my name is Malak that's mean angel in arabic and i'm morrocan and dutch girl . I live in tangier , a beautiful city in northern Morocco near spain . I study in 'Groupe scolaire le detroit and i'm 15 years old . So today i'm going to talk to you about the things that i love and hate about my country . Let's start by the positive . What i prefer about my contry is the culture . Moroccan culture is an amazing culture and has many interesting aspects to it. My favorite part about the Moroccan culture are the weddings. Moroccan wedding are usually very big. It's the time of the year when all the family comes together and get to celebrate. Usually weddings are separated into 3 day.One the first day the bride takes her friends with her to the Turkish bath. Later on that day all the ladies in the family gather in the brides house and they do henna. They dance and laugh and it's just a day all the ladies come together and enjoy their time. The next day is the wedding of course. Everyone gets together and they dance all night long. Most Moroccan weddings end until 5 or 6 in the morning some even later. After the wedding is over, the bride and groom get into the car and everyone celebrates by following the brides car and using their honks to make sort of a melody with it. Although most part of the Moroccan culture is great there is also a negative side. Some of the regions of Moroccan still think in a very old fashion way. One example is there is still a problem about equality between women and men. Not in all cities but in small region around Morocco that aren't completely developed yet. The way they raise their sons is different from the way they raise their daughters. They raise their daughters to get married and their sons to work for the family. They raise their daughter to be sacred and they raise their sons to thinking they can do anything they want. There are still some issues like that and I am completely against it. Overall Moroccan culture is beautiful there is a lot of history behind it and so much to learn. I hope that i helped you to more understand my culture and if you guys have some questions or suggestions say it .
