A nice little hostel right in the heart of town. Decent rooms for a budget hotel and very clean. Staff friendly and helpful. Great breakfast available at supplement...good value. The only downside is no safety deposit box...they tell you it's safe to leave in your room but we would never take that chance!

Leaving the mosque as a mere reflection in the rear view mirror we continued along the Corniche before heading north to the Moroccan capital of Rabat, we soon realised that Casablanca doesn’t provide the true essence of Morocco.
Highlights of Casablanca:
- Strolling and dining along the corniche
- Guided tour of the Mosque of Hassan II
... we felt as if we had known them for years and although Danielle had work commitments and would not be able to see us in Morocco, we were very much looking forward to meeting Mohamed at long last.
AN ILL WIND CONTINUES.....
The flight to Morocco took us over northern Africa. The countryside over western Tunisia and Algeria was fascinating, with extensive agricultural terraces and occasional salt pan lakes. I had no idea that it ...
... camp" for my wanderings. I feel I need to add just one more Adventure Day in Casablanca... just to give this Great Journey some closure. But what should I explore since I've already explored it all? Well--how about a walk down memory lane... doing a quick tour of the city, focusing on the places that have changed dramatically in the last 5 years? That could still count as a "new discovery" because I'm seeing new things in this city--things that weren't here back in ...
