"You must remember this
a kiss is just a kiss.."

Casablanca! This city which is remembered because of the film, and the song "As time goes by".
We were there today.
From now on we will also remember the city for the huge Hassan II Mosque, the third largest mosque in the world.!

Today there were just a few groups visiting the mosque, which was getting prepared for tomorrow. Then one of the most important religious holidays celebrated by Muslims - the AID AL-ADHA - will start and the moscue and the square in front will be crowded. The mosque itself can take 25.000 visitors , and the square outside 80.000. Seeing Hildes photographs from today with nearly no people, makes this quite hard to imagine.

Also the Central Market ( the souk) will be remembered!

The excursions today were the Casablanca city tour, the drive to the Imperial city of Rabat and the full day excursion with overnight in Marracech. We will meet the passengers on this tour to Marracech again in Agadir tomorrow.
