Magnificent Morocco – 13. Morocco’s King Mohammed VI

Everyone here seems to love the King.

Above every electronic signage system in the railway stations.

In many cafes, restaurants and hotels there he is also, sometimes in a suit, or sometimes in a Arabic or African type of outfit.    Its nice to see people have such admiration for their leader.

In addition to being a monarch, he is a pretty shrewd businessman from what I have read.   He’s been leader since 1999, coincidentally the same year Jordan’s current King Abdullah also came to power.

Several other pictures were seen in a few shops I visited, whose owners told me that they were lucky enough to have the King come and visit their business.
