This Year, More than one thousand youth are participating in the Peace Train. The event took place in beatiful city called Saidia Situated as close to the Algerian border as possible in northern Morocco, Saidia is an idyllic town on the Mediterranean coast with one of the loveliest Mediterranean beaches in Morocco. Somewhat sleepy, this town comes alive in the summer months when Moroccans flock here for a beach holiday; but the town itself is in a unique position, as the Kasbah, located just behind the beach, is still occupied by locals to this day.
