Jan 7, 2008 - ¡Hasta la vista, muñeca! ;-) ¡ Bismillah, Casablanca!

Llegamos a Casablanca cuando el domingo 6 de enero atardecía. Teníamos intención de cenar en el Bavaria, lo recomendaba Lonely Planet, pero resulta que cierra los domingos :-( En lugar de lamentarme, opté por volver a escuchar a Abdallah y su laúd medieval en el restaurante del hotel Guynemer. A Shirley, que aún no lo había escuchado, le pareció buena idea y resultó genial. Al contrario que en mi primera visita, había muy poco público. Nos sentamos a su lado, me enrollé con él (no habla inglés) y me explicó un montón de cosas sobre la...

Jan 2, 2008 - Casa revisited

I'm back in Casa, it's like a wet Wednesday in January here, probably because it is a wet Wednesday in January here. Back to get the Yellow Fever Vaccination here and then up to Rabat to sort some visas. Except that I've been doing some reading this afternoon, those of you that know me well will know that I leave everything to the last minute and this includes research about where I'm planning on going. Turns out that the best place to get the Mauritanian visa is at the border and and despite my belief that I needed a double entry visa for...

Dec 28, 2007 - Casablanca

Casablanca is more of a service stop than a visited destination, I came here to try to get myself immunised for Yellow Fever and possibly pick up a couple of visas into the bargain. I was also intending to spend New years eve here but after one day I thought better of that and booked a bus to Essaouira. I managed to find the place to get the injection, Institut Pasteur, but the woman I spoke to there said that she couldn't do it then but could do it tomorrow. Having already bought the ticket out I will have to return in the new year. The...

Oct 8, 2007 - Cassablanca - Reflection on Maroc

More pics on www.flickr.com search under people for don_elle Second last day on our tour - what an amazing country - the colours, the smells, the sounds all are amazing. The countryside changes from the deserts to rocks to lush valleys and oasis. We travelled through the middle Atlas and the high Atlas ranges - it would be a dream for any geologist - or amateur rock "watcher". Morocco has the most amazing black marble - and is immensely rich in fossils. In the black marble you see hundreds of squid - one wonders what incredible natural...

Sep 26, 2007 - Morocco

Morocco is Africa`s fastest developing country. Our stay was in Casablanca, on the Atlantic coast, with our Belgian cousins, Gerard and Bernadette, and two of their five children, Astrid and Thibeault. Morocco is a land of paradox, with slums mixed with high rises and beautiful villas alongside. The streets are a crazy melange of Mercedes and donkeys and carts. On our first full day we spent the afternoon at the beach with huge waves that toppled you over if you ventured out too far. We loved the spray of the salt water and the warm...

Sep 12, 2007 - Casablanca to Fes

Oh my where do I begin? I must apologize now for the terrible spelling about to take place. Here the keyboard is very different than what we have at home so any keyboarding skills I have are out the window. It pays to be a one-fingered pecker like my friend Hal. Also there is no English; just French and a dialect of Arabic. I wish I had paid more attention in my grade 7 French lessons. Flights from Edmonton to Montreal; Montreal to Paris, and Paris to Casablanca left us in need of some sleep on a nice bed. Upon arrival in Cqsqblqncq (that...

Salam Alekoum from (drum roll please)...Morocco! Thinking about the last three countries I traveled to, I realized something interesting: They all start with the letter "M"! I wonder if anyone has ever gone from Malaysia to Mexico and then Morocco in that order -- and in a six-week period? Maybe all this travel has gotten to me, and I'm just out of my head. If so, please excuse my ramblings. At any rate, we left off last week at the Cancun airport. From there I flew to Dallas, L.A., New York and Casablanca. If you're up for accruing some...

Sep 16, 2006 - Casablanca

Casa es la ciudad mas grande de Marruecos, el centro economico del pais. Tambien parece mas ordenada de lo normal y la costa con bares y discotecas y elevada con respecto al mar tiene un aire a la Costa Verde de Lima. Me quede con una amiga de una amiga, muy simpatica, me llevo a comer a sitios particulares de Casa. Pero lo mas importante es que me dio el dato de la mejor patisserie de Casa, donde van los locales....por supuesto tuve que ir y tambien me compre 2-3 de cada tipo de dulce que tenian. La caja me duro menos de un dia, todo...

I sent the night here arriving at a hotel at one in the morning. Not as interesting as the film portrayed. Big cosmopolitan city really,only for the night. They do have a relly cool mosque in town though, the 3rd largest religious structure in the world behind Mekka and the st.Peters cathedral. Casablanca is where i first came in contact with the Moroccan BED BUG!!!!!

This is a city were not much is happening for tourists in any way. A major bustling place baiscally we are just and we are just now leaving Rabat, Inge saw a doctor yesterday in the Hotel last night, and now armed with some potent medicine she seems to be feeling better. We leave Morocco with feelings of great enjoyment, loved the Sahara desert, the wonderful Kasbahs, and ofcourse our unforgettable weekend in Marrakech partying the nights away with my cousin and his friends from London!

Apr 18, 2006 - Casablanca, Morocco

After some difficulty getting a taxi driver to understand where we wanted to go we resorted to shrades "Chuga-chuga chuga-chuga choo choo", it worked and we were on our way to the train station. After booking our ticket for the next days journey we had to figure how to get the hostel that was supposedly close to the train station. A taxi driver offered to help but only spoke French so we headed off by foot, behind us the taxi driver was saying something but we didn't know what. One hundred metres down the road and the taxi man pulled up...
