okay - how about next weekend?

Hi,

I'll be joining you guys for mint tea when I get to Marrakesh in mid-February...see you then...

The real problem is in fact the creation of invisible frontiers and psychological obstacles that hamper in most cases the possibility of a good communication. Expats living only among themselves and not trying to open their mind to the culture they live in, thehistory that moulded the moroccan etc....
Do not be afraid to communicate in a prim and proper manner.

Hey,

to make friends?

Every where in Marrakech you can make friends (local and expat).
in cafés and restaurants, also in excursions ...

Hi I am Christine. I have just moved to Marrakech and know very few people. I would like to devlop a circle of friends so that I can meet up and drink tea or coffee and chat. I am a granny, but not your regular grey bun and knitting socks type of granny. I haven't got a local mobile phone yet, but my email address is listed. I am also on Facebook, user name Crystal Metha or Chris Williams.

Hello my friends,

  I'm from Saudi Arabia I had planned to visit Marrakech this month for the first time, and I have no idea about the attractions and good hotels to where I live. I would like to get to know people there and come together to drink coffee or go to nightclubs for dancing and fun. It will spend about ten days.

I hope that he met someone who can take me on a tour to look at the features of the beautiful city of Marrakech.

Have a nice evening


Regards
Lolitia

It's so easy to make friends in Marrakesh

Just go out at night to places like Pacha Club & Rose Bar, be present to international fairs & events ( MTM, Formula 2, Tennis,, Festival du Cinema, Festival du Rire....)

But for guys, just be careful with girls in Marrakech , they are dangerous :)

Hi Reda
It can be easy and also difficult to find suitable ones depends on what kind of friends u feel more comfortable with
for exemple such weird places like pacha, theatro..and so on, yes, be sure u meet up plenty people u might have fun with during night who probably won't recognize you the day after  :)
Better waiting for those annual rewarding events !!
Concerning Marrakechi girls it's known they're so, I would like to know how dangerous ???

Riadjal thumbs up loool :D

Thanks for your reply.

I was just answering on how to make new contacts ,doesn't mean you 'll make friends by going to nightplaces, but u just have more chances to than by just staying at home and wondering how ....

As for the girls there, it's quite known for that,  & strangers who haven't been used to that can easily fall in love with a ''local'' who'se only interest is to get married to improve her living.

Hi Réda
Possible... u can just staying home and collect nice friendships from all over the world ....No wonders just by a simple ...guess how ??.. you tell me :)
If you think so that those girls set up a trap to strangers to get married just to ameliorate their living, sure for a reason,
Beleive me, U men -foreigners or locals- r not that silly to be easily duped
so what about foreigner girls and women who get married to moroccan locals? is it also in interest to improve their lives?? :)
Use your brain and change yours opinion about ur sisters ;)

Fun night and really great opportunity to meet people!

Hi,I have recently moved to Marrakech from London to be with my husband and I am looking to make lots of English speaking friends.  If you fancy meeting for coffee that would be great :)

Hello!!! I move over on Tuesday to get married and will be staying for a few months x

Hi Jess,I hope you have a wonderful wedding day.  I got married in 2011 to my moroccan husband Amine and I could not believe the amount of documents that were required and the countless trips to the family court.

I moved to Marrakech from London about 4 weeks ago and just starting to get use to a different way of living.  I am learning Arabic but I will even admit I am SOoooo Rubbish ha ha!! :)

We will arrange a meet up x  inbox you my details x

Congratulations on the wedding. May God help you get through the mountain of paperwork. I have heard some people can it done in a couple weeks, it took me and my husband 3 months. Although We Americans often do things the hard way.

I'm from Barcelona, I live in Marrakech. I would like to meet people, If somebody would go to take coffee or wine, whatever. Writte an e-mail.

Thanks,

José
