We were honored to welcome Dana J. Hyde, CEO of the Millennium Challenge Corporation, to the American Legation Museum on this cold and rainy Saturday evening.
Ms. Hyde led an MCC delegation to Morocco, including Tetouan and Tangier. They were hosted by officials from the Office of the Prime Minister and the regional and municipal governments. TALIM Director Davison was pleased to reunite with a former diplomatic negotiating partner, Abdelghani Lakhdar, who currently serves as Economic Adviser to the Prime Minister.
Sunday mornings at the Legation are usually very quiet, much like the sleepy streets of Tangier. This Sunday, however, we were honored by a special visit from Idaho Senator James E. Risch and his family. Ambassador Dwight Bush came from Rabat to meet the Risch’s and welcome them on their first visit to Morocco. The family decided to visit Tangier while on vacation in southern Spain. Vicky Risch, Senator Risch’s wife, felt drawn to the idea of visiting the Legation: “I read about the museum before coming to Spain and I just knew that I had to see it.”
