Streets of Casablanca

For some, the only draw of Casablanca is the myth created by Hollywood. There is plenty not to like. The streets are dusty, there are sporadic redevelopments and refurbishments, the tourist attractions don’t seem authentic, more like theme parks. We came here to escape the cold and damp of Europe in Winter.  It has been mostly sunny and highs around 20°-23°C (68°-73°F).  Additionally, we need to get things done along with travel plans and yellow fever vaccinations.

We have walked the alleys full of activity in the Medina (old city) and the Marche Central (central market).  The haphazardness recalls what the orderly European markets of today would be like a century ago.  In these wanderings, I have fallen in love with the unrepentant architecture along the streets. Here are a few examples of my discoveries.
