Casablanca?

Hello

Are you wondering if this all I have of Casablanca? Yup it is. My time in Casablanca, Morocco, Africa didn’t go as planned. What can I say? Plans don’t always pan out and today is one of those days. Initially, I planned on landing, getting a bite to eat, shaking off the jet lag and going to explore. Except, it didn’t quite work out, I ended up landing, grabbing my first traditional Moroccan lunch and when I got to the hotel, I told myself, okay just a little nap. Before I knew, I’d fallen asleep and only woke up in time for a late dinner. Luckily I got the chance to walk in the streets of Casablanca by night, dine at a great restaurant called Rick’s cafe. I also got a sneak a peak of the majestic Hassan II mosque by the night as we drove by. Even if it was dark and not lighted up, I have a picture of the mosque in my mind. Beautiful and grand with the sound of the waves in the background as the Hassan 11 mosque is by the sea. Since I had to stick to the schedule, the next morning was time to leave Casablanca and head to our next destination to begin this Moroccan experience.

Hopefully, I will eventually return and make up for lost time in Casablanca.  I will return to the Hassan II mosque and visit this it’s majestic green architecture and enjoy the beauty by the sea. Although I did not see much of it, I did buy this 3D version of it as a souvenir of my time in Casablanca, Morocco.  Even such a figurine demonstrates it’s grand beauty except in real this there is the sea behind and a path way leading to the main gates.

Others things I’ll possibly do/visit next time I happen to be in Casablanca, Morocco:

  • The Hassan II is the main attraction to see  but I’d also like to visit the medina of Casablanca- maze like alley ways.
  • I’d also like to visit Mohamed V Place which is the central plaza of Casablanca and then enjoy the Corniche promenade to enjoy the city’s beachfront.
  • The Sacre coeur cathedral is also worth a visit
  • Shopping at the central market in Casablanca.

I’ll have splendid Morocco pictures to share with you!

Until next time,

Evelina

    1. Rick’s cafe was cool, glad I got to to that, Yeah I am always tired when landing in a new cities, a few hours or even a day is quite necessary to be at my best travel self. I agree, it is indeed spectacular, simply incredible architecture.

  1. That’s awesome. I can’t believe you went to Rick’s cafe. That’s so awesome. I’ve always wanted to go there ever since I saw the movie Casablanca. I’m sorry you didn’t get more time there. I hope you get to go back. I loved the pictures you took. I can’t wait to read about your next adventure. Until next time, Kathleen

    1. Yes it is! I got myself lovely patterned and very affordable scarfs from the street markets. But yes, the markets are indeed rich in color and scents too. Cool, more posts to come every Friday. My next stop is in Tangier Morocco filled with colors and patterns in the architecture. And yes, maybe someday but even so, you will see through my blog posts, I got a good idea of Morocco therefore am still satisfied with my trip.
