First Impressions of Casablanca, Morocco
Day 1 in Morocco - arrived in Casablanca (January)Had my passport and papers checked 3 times at Casablanca airport and my luggage x-rayed. No smiles - a bit like america in that sense. Lighting was kept to a minimum in the airport and many smoked even there were no smoking signs.
Plane food was decent enough marinated beef stew with chickpeas and cous cous.
Chocolate creme dessert. Coffee but no milk available.
I have been advised to wear a wedding ring to keep the men at bay. So I am wearing a cheap ring with glass for a diamond - I am not married and feel like a fraud.
Arrived at the hotel Ajiad, Casablanca. Room is simple but clean. My tripadvisor review

The streets of Casablanca
Looking out onto the streets of Casablanca it's filled with men standing around, looks like Hanley centre in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffs. Only a few women about. We were advised to get a cab at night if we wanted to go out as the streets aren't particularly safe for foreigners at night.
Where's the sun?
It 16oC and raining today.
Black combats, khaki t-shirt, black fleece and khaki head scarf. Covered up.
