MY WORLD - CASABLANCA - Morocco
more participants here
I am actually on a round trip through Morocco, and today we visited
the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca which is the third largest mosque in the world. It stands on a promontory looking out to the Atlantic. Its minaret is the world's tallest at 210 m (689 ft)
We took the usual tourist pictures, but when I am back I will write a little more about the city. There is such a lot of traffic and the cars are coming from all sides. Red lights are there but nobody cares. Crossing a street is almost like committing suicide, but apparently there are very few accidents.
Tomorrow we will visit Rabat, which is the capital of Morocco.
a little closer, it is really enormous

Beautiful mosaics everywhere
