The city is part French, part Moroccan--part Art Deco, part Casbah--part extremely wealthy, part struggling to get by. The joke our guide tells is that if you see a young man carrying an umbrella in Casablanca in July, then it must be raining in Paris. The wealthy compete to send their children to French schools and live in prestigious neighbourhoods. I think I miss the Amazighs (Berber) villages.
Hypocritically, I suppose, I have thoroughly enjoyed the Hassan II Mosque and the Cathedral Notre Dame De Lourdes. The stain glass windows in Notre Dame were designed by Gabriel Loire (another nod to the French). When you enter you are simply awestruck. The building feels like a skeleton created just to hold up the stained glass.
We get on a plane early tomorrow morning. So, here's looking at you, kid😄
As Time Goes By....You are Always in My Prayers. Love Mom.
P.S. If you haven't seen the movie Casablanca, they have it at the North Perth Library--all you need is a library card
