We arrived to a cold and rainy Casablanca, but it cleared up long enough to take a walk along the beach. Our hotel was situated on the ocean amidst many beach front restaurants that I would imagine are very lively when the weather is warm. The Atlantic Ocean was incredibly more powerful and majestic than it is on the east coast of the United States.
The feel of Casablanca was more western than other cities. Women in track suits and headscarves power walked along the ocean walkways. Restaurants offered a variety of French, Italian, Mediterranean, and Moroccan dishes.
We stopped by the beautiful Hassan II Mosque before heading north to Meknes and Fez.
