Pen Friend Wanted!

I am writing to you hoping that you can help me. I am an avid reader of your blog, its wonderful.

I am hoping to come and live in Morocco in about a years time and am looking for as much info as pos. We are a muslim UK based family hoping to come and find a bit more knowledge of our religion and to soak up a bit of moroccan peace and spirituality.

I have been to morocco a few times so I know a bit,however I would really like to be able to contact someone regularly with my endless questions.

I have tried lots of message boards but have only had responses back from men,probably most of which well meaning but for myself a married with children woman having regular contact with young moroccan men is a little awkward.

 I was therefore wondering if you know of a moroccan lady with email who would be able to give advice on living in morocco,learning arabic,quran studies?
