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.
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.
