Casablanca Morocco downtown...

...where we had a long walk on Sunday...
I took tons of pictures, here are a few of them...


Boys playing football...

Newspapers, books, pens...
and a helpful young boy who helped my husband to find a lock to our door...

These are cool! right?

At the moment no customers but there are many public telephones around the city and I've seen people to use them a lot.
Mobile calls in Morocco are expensive!


I posted about the football fans here. For me these paintings look like masks or uniforms for war not for sports...Is that serious here?

Football heroes...

Right...There's a tunnel, can you see it? 
That's the way to the airport where I'm heading on Wednesday...

  8. Those portraits sure are cool. I like their writing too. Great that you are enjoying what looks like beautiful weather, sunny skies, and taking to the streets to show street life from so distant a land. Seems graffiti is a universal phenomenon. It's like saying, I'm Here!

  9. Loved the pics of Casa. It's always fun looking over your shoulder!

    Happy travels tomorrow. I hope Finland has lots of spring flowers blooming to welcome you home.

    Don't forget to pack your red stilettos!

    I think those faces are really well painted...
    Here mainly men sit in cafes - women are at home cooking, cleaning...or at the hairdresser or hammam gossiping with other women... :)

    >>LINDA
    I was wondering what was wrong with my shoulder - it's you! LOL! :)
    It's much cooler in Finland right now but it's welcome because in our home it's +26 and no wind nor fan...
    Red stilettos - in your dreams!
    I pack these
    NOKIA footwear
    Yes, the same NOKIA where the mobile story began several years ago...
