Casablanca II الدار البيضاء

Hassan II Mosque, Casablanca

After spending one week in Morocco, I was ready to resume my affair with Spain. Morocco supplied a deep cultural experience, but it's a harsh existence. The afternoon heat is brutal, the foreigness of the customs is a little stressful, and the driving is certainly like no other place I've visited.

I was ready for something more Western.

Rather than stay at the same hotel downtown Casablanca, we decided to look for something closer to the ocean. We nervously drove into town and headed for the seaside. South of the enormous Hassan II mosque lies the beaches and resorts that line them.
