Casablanca, Part 2

There are a few other sights in Casablanca for the tourists to visit other than the mosque, but we had nothing else in particular that we wanted to see badly. Thus we told Mohammad, just drive. Drive he did. We went past upscale shopping districts, parks, government offices and residential areas.

For the majority of our time in the city, it was drizzly and gray and gloomy. Not very conducive to exploring a foreign city. To be frank, outside of the mosque (post coming) there is little the city has to offer me; but I would definitely go back given the chance so that I may do a more thorough visit.

  3. It's so interesting, my whole image of Casablanca is based on the movie. My mind's eye sees it as a sleepy little town with tourists floating into exotic bars. Clearly it's not a sleepy little town at all!!

  7. You are right--the new bridge is only 300 years old, build in the 1700's as opposed to the old bridge whose foundations are possibly Roman. We are Spain and headed to Morocco tomorrow. Having already been once, my stomach is actually in knots. Hate is too strong of a word, but I now associate most Arab things negatively because I live in Saudi. I dislike the music, the smells, and dirt. I am glad you are having a nice time!
