What I saw in… Casablanca.

Next stop: Casablanca, Morocco. A welcomed change of scenery – quite different from what I saw in Spain. If you ever travel to Casablanca, please do visit the Mosque of Hassan II, you will not be disappointed. It really is quite incredible… I don’t want to bombard this entire post with images of the Mosque, because I do have enough photographs to post 10 times over, but just wanted to give you a glimpse of it, the close-up details if you will. Wanted to start off the post with this super cute little girl (shown above, with the Mosque towering in the background). Don’t you just love her outfit? Fun mix and match of patterns, she definitely pulled it off!

Mosque of Hassan II
Vast and impressive mosaic patterns everywhere. The stone and marble floor spans across the entire space. Did you know the Mosque was built on reclaimed land?

In and around Old Medina
Love love love the crowdedness of this. How about those mirrors leaning against the wall? Would make a wonderful collection in a long hallway at home.

I appreciate a good use of pink as much as the next girl, especially when it’s used in conjunction with architecture. That pop of pink/stripes on the white building is brilliant!

    Wow, amazing! Seeing all your pictures sure gives birth to an idea of a vacation plan. The Moorish influence in architecture is giving the buildings in Casablanca that whole mysterious aura, like you where in Arabian Nights. Now I definitely have my next vacation planned.
