Whenever we mentioned to anyone in Morocco that we were going to Casablanca, they exclaimed, "Ah! You will not like it!" Wrong! The Hassan II Mosque is completely awe-inspiring and totally worth the trip (also the only place I took pictures, other than the view of it from our hotel). Also I am totally opening myself up to judgment here, but we made the trek over to Chili's for a molten lava cake...which I am only slightly mortified about. Hey, I am an American living 5000 miles away from home and I need to take my comforts where I can find them. We only spent a day in Casablanca, but it was a great place to stop along the long road from Marrakech to Fez. And in two weeks full of riads, it was nice to spend a couple of nights in a suite with room service and completely reliable wifi. Win win win!
