First Postcrossing Meetup in Morocco - Rabat, 10 May 2019


Welcome to the first Postcrossing Meetup in Morocco!

CITY/REGION: Rabat
DATE: 10 May 2019
MEETING TIME: 4 pm
MEETING PLACE: Train station “Rabat Ville”, Avenue Mohammed V

salam, ya maghrib! Hello, Morocco!
My name is Michele (= Mike) and I'm an Italian postcrosser living in France.
I will be visiting Morocco from 30 April to 16 May. I will be staying in Agadir, Marrakesh, Rabat and Fez.

I am happy to announce that Hicham (chamirager) and I are organizing the first-ever Postcrossing meetup in Morocco! It will take place in Rabat on Friday 10 May (because I will be there from 8 to 11 May only).

This is the provisional meetup programme:
- 4 pm: we will meet at the "Rabat Ville" Train Station in Mohamed V Avenue
- 4.15 / 4.30 pm: we will walk to the Old Medina to explore it and buy postcards
- 5:15 pm: we will move to the Oudaya Gardens (aka Andalusian Gardens) to sit down, sign postcards, talk, and have a good time.

Since the meetup will take place during Ramadan, we will not go to a café or restaurant, as it is the norm for most Postcrossing meetings. We still believe we will have fun anyway!
You are all welcome to join us with your family and friends, whether they are Postcrossers or not (yet).
See you soon,
Michele

PARTICIPANTS
mikebond (Michele)
chamirager (Hicham)
west-coast (Atef)
Kamal (not a postcrosser yet)
Walid (Walid)
Janitha (Jane)
...

PLEASE READ THIS before requesting a swap
Since I expect a lot of people will ask for a meeting card from this meeting, I would like to ask you to send your swap request to me on Facebook (Michele Bondesan) or by mail to michele.bondesan@gmail.com with a photo of the postcards you are offering.
Please bear in mind that:
- there will be few participants (maybe 6 or 7)
- some, if not most of them, will only be able to send few postcards because postage is expensive in Morocco for the local living standards (more than 0.80 euros for Europe and 1.50 euros to the world.
So, your swap request will not necessarily be accepted, but you are free to give it a try... :)
Thank you for understanding!

We have a meeting card! (UPDATED 5 May 2019 - new design)


I'm pleased to show you our meeting card prepared by Hicham!
If you attend the meeting, please let us know how many copies you would like so that Hicham knows how many he should have printed.
