- Tech Fact of the Day: Since Morocco is located so far west (actually further west than Greenwich, England, which is at 0° longitude), like England and Portugal, the time is one hour different from the rest of Europe and the western Mediterranean. But since Morocco does not practice daylight savings (as is done in Europe and the United States), the time is now two hours different from the surrounding countries. For example, when we passed from Ceuta to Morocco, we actually had to turn our watches back two whole hours!
