Photo Friday #35

CASABLANCA, MOROCCO   |   TRAVELS WITH KID

After spending an entire month travelling in Morocco, when asked, Spud's first highlight of the entire trip is visiting the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca. An incredible structure, somewhere between the second and the fifth largest mosque in the world (depending on who you ask), it boasts an incredible amount of detailed craftsmanship at a mind-boggling scale.



Look how tiny we look in front of this doorway ...




And in front of this fountain ...




Just one part of the outside courtyard ... nice tile work!




A great place to take a midday break ...




Spud took this shot of the minaret, the tallest structure in Morocco.




A part of the ablutions room ...

You take amazing shots! You are making me incredible jealous of your month in Morocco and I can't wait to dive more into your site and read all about it.

That is amazing. I can see why a visit to this mosque made an impression on Spud!

I go back to your photos of Morocco quite a bit and have decided that it is my next destination.... all because I fell in love with the place from viewing your photos!
