Hassan2 mosque in the mist

Arriving at Casablanca 4:00am. Luckily the place we are booking through airbnb is not far from CTM bus station in Casablanca. I guess I could walk there but it's still dark early morning and I still don't know how's the town in Casablanca,so we took a taxi. The google map helping me very well especially when I'm in unknowing town. I along my google map GPS then I can tell the driver where is the exactly place. The taxi driver tried cheat me but couldn't.

I will meet Kanichi who traveled together Greece in 2015 from Japan. He is a business partner also a good travel companion as he is a traveling expart called "Hyper nomad traveler",yes he travel 300 days in a year. He prefer to stay airbnb so we stay local house during we travel together.

But what a matter with airbnb is not easy to find a house. If it's a hotel we can ask people around and people know. And the first airbnb in Morroco,the house owner didn't give us the corect name of the building. I along the adress which Kanichi sent me then 99% here,I am standing at front of the building at 5am. No key,no one here,and probably Kanichi sleeping even he said try to be in the front around 5am. My daughter and I staied there for 30 min,A man came from the corner on the street. I know he was standing some time before. He speaks French and try to talk to me. It seems like he try to help me. But couldn't understand each other,he left me. After 15 min he came again with same French. The building manager woke up and look us on a street,then a man taked him something..
Kanichi is a good photographer
.We all couldn't have same language but some English worked. Finaly we recoganized each other also Kanichi showed up at the entrance. It's already 6am.  I took shower then we decided to go to mosque for the short time in Casablanca. Yes,we move to Marrakech this afternoon.

We arrived Hassan 2 Mosque in the mist. The mist made Hassan2 more speciality. Kanichi have a nice camera and his good sense of photography. We are luckly as he try to take very best photograph for us. The mosque is quite huge and loved the mosaic tile ditails...it's so beautiful. The mist being clean little by little ten finaly we could see the mosque very well.  Our check out ime is at noon,so we have to back home once then going  to CTM bus station. The taxi driver here is not good to do communication. We took a taxi drop us at an another place we asked because he had to wait his clients at the mosque...yes,he try to make money during he wait his clients and gave up. Oh well, catch a taxi is not easy in Casablanca especally we are 3. Most of them are omnibus. Well,it's not far to our acommodation,we walke along the google map. Then again we had to take a taxi to bus station, OK we start walk with lugagges.
