"Play it again, Sam"

overcast 15 °C

We arrived in Casablanca at night and I must admit I was not very impressed. We stayed near the bus station that night and found our way to the old Medina the next morning to find a cheaper place to stay. The old Medina was the usual mix of windy little streets that seem impossible to navigate until you spend a few days in there. We found a great cheap hostel but the Medina itself was not particularly special.
We made our way out to the famous mosque which really did live up to the hype. While we couldn't go in, being non-muslim, the outside was truly beautiful. The mosaics, the minarets, the columns and the carvings were breathtaking. It was worth the trip just for that. To be honest it didn't seem like Casablanca had much else to offer.
