Wow...what a whirlwhind of a day. We arrived in Casablanca at approximately 8 am on Thursday morning. This was definitely not a day of rest for us, and I didn't even have the energy to write down my thoughts until Friday.
After retrieving our bags, we met our guide for the trip, Omar. He has already proven to be a wealth of knowledge. Everywhere we go, he can give us historical background, political background, explanations of Islam and specific terms of flowers, tress, etc. I am so glad he is with us. Omar led us to the mini-bus we have (15 seats for us + 2 seats for Omar and the chauffeur.) We immediately went to take a tour of the Mosque in Casablanca.
