Summer in Casablanca

41° C... It got even hotter later on!I remember some sentences from the preparation calls:

“Morocco is not just desert. It will be cold! Prepare and bring warm clothes with you!”

In fact, at the beginning of our assignment at least the nights were a bit chilly. But today was the hottest day so far, the mercury crossed the 40° Celsius border. Not surprisingly this had an effect on the dress-code. ;-)

Exploring Hot Marrakesh

Marrakesh - It's Summertime!The breakfast was served on the terrace, which means that the staff had to transport the food across three floors / staircases. For us it was soooo relaxing! :-) Afterwards, Said helped us to mark the famous spots on our maps and we were ready to explore the city on our own, enjoying the summer-like weather.

After another meal on a nice terrace at the spice market we split; I was in the shopping- resp. bargaining group and visited the souks. We were more or less successful… well, I lost some good arguments for a made-in-morocco T-shirt when I showed my “Tangier”-shirt for 50 DH (US-$ 6) to the seller – unfortunately with the “made in”-label cut off. ;-)
