Our Next Program:
Transit in Algeria, Morocco, and Tunisia by Ray DeGroote
CERA goes international for our May program. Our resident world traveler and raconteur Ray DeGroote has been giving his passport a workout lately, and hopes to expand your horizons as well.
Five light rail lines opened in North Africa in the last three years: Rabat and Casablanca in Morocco and Algiers; Oran and Constantine in Algeria. In addition Algiers opened a metro line, the second in all of Africa (Cairo was first.) The Tunis, Tunisia light rail system has been in service almost 30 years and new cars are now being delivered. In addition, Tunis has two suburban lines.
CERA members Ray DeGroote and Bruce Moffat visited Morocco last October, and Ray just returned from a trip to Tunisia, Algiers, and France. The May program will include views from all of these places, some historical notes, and even perhaps a word or two in Arabic. Be sure to join us for an entertaining and informative evening.
Admission is free for current CERA members. There will be a $5.00 Admission charge for non-members. Passports are optional, but we do take Visa.
