Morocco

After Portugal we headed south and entered the country in Casablanca and tied up at the Casablanca Yacht Club a broken down, rat infested floating dock in the corner of the busy commercial port, where there was one British boat, a small French yacht with a family on board, and Vire Nord. Casablanca was smelly but very interesting and lively, a mixture of Arabic and French. We left the boat there for a few days while we took the train inland to Marrakesh and the Haute Atlas mountains, again very colourful and different. Then we sailed down the coast to 2 other Moroccan ports (no other yachts), before heading across to the windy Islas Canarias.

What an interesting place, from the Atlas Mountains to the busy souks (markets) - there was just not enough time to take it all in. Fascinating.

Mosque Hassan II, we could see it for miles as we approached, it is 60 stories high and hold 20 000 worshippers. Casablancas most famous landmark.
