Back in Casablanca

We returned to our ship rather late in the evening, the harbour was smelly and foggy and we hurried aboard, looking forward to a whole day at sea on our way to Madeira

Koutoubia Mosque

Low sun behind the minaret of the Koutoubia Mosque. Time to head towards our bus and leave Marrakesh.


Typically Marrakesh

Red walls, palm trees, blue skies, snowy mountains in the back and lots of ACs


Marrakesh Souk

Streetlife in the Souk of Marrakesh, blind shot from the hip



There were some rather nice flowers in the gardens surrounding the tombs


Yellow Rose

We saw tourists picking flowers in the gardens around the Saadian tombs but this rose had survived


Saadian Tombs II

Another peek into the building


Saadian Tombs

We only had 5 hours to visit Marrakesh but at least managed to visit the Saadian tombs and the Bahia Palace


The Kasbah Mosque

As a non muslim tourist you are not allowed to enter the Kasbah mosque (also called el-Manouria or Moulay Al Yazid mosque) but you can enjoy the building from outside. It was built in 1190 and although not as spectacular as the famous Koutoubia mosque it is nevertheless a prime example for the architecture of the "red" city.


Marrakesh Mobylette

you can recognise recently exchanged parts quite easily


Welcome to Casablanca

we didn't believe the stories about the smog and the smell ... until we arrived. Ugh!
