This morning we had an opportunity to visti Hassan II Mosque (something that I left off doing before joining the group) only to discover that it was closed to tours because of an Islamic holiday - a celebration of Mohammeds's birthday! It will turnout that all major business will be closed for the next 3 days. As you can see, I got some beautiful pictures from the outside of the mosque. It is HUGE and it's located on the oceanfront all by itself, so it looks - in some lighting - like it's floating on the water. The guidebooks that my fellow travellers have show pictures of the inside magnificence.

As we could not get in, we all walked back to the hotel - about an hour - collected our things and walked for the next 10 minutes to the train station.
