This was not my first visit to Casablanca, but this time I had a chance to explore the city a little bit more than in 2013. Last time it was our first place from where we started discovering the Kingdom of Morocco.
Pretty nice and hospitable Moroccan girl hosted us this time and we spent a few days in her apartment with guest room in Moroccan style. We came during Ramadan and had a chance to try delicious Iftar (meal during Ramadan after the sunset) with our hosts.
I can’t say that I’m so much familiar with Casa even if I`ve visited the city twice, but what I found interesting about this place are:
Iftar with our hosts in Casa
The biggest Moroccan mosque – Hassan II Mosque which was built on the seashore. It is really huge building. There are more pictures of this mosque here ❤
The Atlantic Ocean which is my love. How lucky those people are to have the opportunity to see the biggest water area in the world.
The people. I`ve met many of wonderful people in Casablanca who inspired me to learn more about the culture, women and arts of Morocco. They are very talented and I am glad I`ve got to know those people.
The culture. It is about Morocco in general, but what we have discovered in Casablanca is that later there were Christians, Jewish and other cultures living on this territory. We got to know about multi-cultural side of Morocco because of the only one Museum of Jewish culture through the whole Arab world.
The language. Moroccan people mainly speak Arabic and French but we know only English, so the international language of gestures together with some useful words like “Bonjour” helped us a lot.
A few days spent in Casablanca was just the beginning of our Moroccan adventure and now Nador was waiting for us.
