Dear Ahmed,

It was good seeing you last night and I appreciate you inviting me to the dinner. I spoke to Dr. Hamre today about the trip and conveyed your concerns about the situation in Morocco. He is also very concerned and keen on learning more during our upcoming visit.

In terms of the dates I’ve confirmed the following with Dr. Hamre: Arrive in Morocco on March 27 and depart on March 31. I’m still working out his flight and time preferences, and can send you that information in the next couple of days.

When you are available later in the week we should discuss more details about the trip.

We look forward to seeing you later in the month.

Many thanks.
