Knowing what you know now, would you still move to this city?

Absolutely! Even more enthusiastically if anything. - Oct 24, 2017
YES! - Oct 23, 2017
No, we would have accepted a different posting. - Aug 29, 2017
No; but I am happy to have met and known some amazing Moroccan people. - Jul 20, 2014
Yes, definitely. Except for the aggravating driving habits of Moroccans, it is very easy to get through a week here, and you have plenty of options to entertain yourself. I am not worried about getting mugged or carjacked or coming down with malaria. Morocco is a fascinating country with so many influences, and rich cuisine and arts and decorations/furniture/architecture and music to delve into. - Nov 17, 2011
Interesting for a little while. but it just got old. The work ethic is terrible, the FSN's are on Pluto (some, not all), and driving in this country is a trip through absolute stupidity. - Nov 16, 2011
Definitely. - Sep 18, 2011
No. Although Rabat has rewarded us with many new friends and experiences, I would not do it again. If you are fortunate enough to land one of the nice houses with no facility issues...consider yourself lucky. Some of the houses appear very nice, but they can come with a multitude of issues. Getting maintenance done in a timely matter can be very aggravating. - Apr 8, 2010
