Tunis, Tunisia to Casablanca, Morocco

August 9th 212

After a nice 4 nights in Tunis I got ready and I left for the airport. The flight that I was able to get was a one way flight from Tunis, Tunisia to Casablanca, Morocco. The cost of this flight was $197.83 with tax and all. The airline that I flew with for this flight was Royal Air Maroc. The cost of the ticket itself was $132.00 and the taxes on the flight were $53.83. There was also a service fee as usual and that was $12.00. I left the Tunis airport at Aug 09, 2012 11:55 AM and I landed at the Casablanca airport at Aug 09, 2012 2:40 PM. The total fly time for me was 2 hours and 45 minutes.

The hotel that I stayed in at Casablanca was the HOTEL TRANSATLANTIQUE. This was another four star rated hotel that I stayed in. The hotel came with many features. These features included: a restaurant which serves breakfast and lunch, a bar which is open for drinks, room service which was available 24/7, small meeting rooms, audio/visual equipment, free Wi-Fi in public areas, and free parking. There is also a night club, laundromat and a cafe.

I stayed at the HOTEL TRANSATLANTIQUE for four nights. I was charged for that long. I price per night at the HOTEL TRANSATLANTIQUE that I was able to get was $64.84. The room that I was able to get was a standard single room. For four nights the price of the hotel came to $259.36. The taxes on the hotel were $25.92. This brought the total price to $285.28.

The three places that I went to go see in Casablanca were the New Medina of Casablanca, Hassan II Mosque and the Museum of Moroccan Judaism. The first place that I went to go visit was the New Medina of Casablanca. I have already visited a Medina on my trip. I went to one when I was in Tunis. I felt comfortable in there because I knew what to expect. I bought some stuff like spices and jewellery and I left. The next place I went to go visit was the Hassan II Mosque. I have visited a few churches and cathedrals but I have never visited a mosque before. The Hassan II Mosque was a very good example of portraying Moroccan architecture. It was also one of the only mosques in the city that allowed non-Muslims to visit. The last place that I went to go visit was the Museum of Moroccan Judaism. In the museums I saw many artefacts and artistic objects that represented the Moroccan Jews in history. It showed me the history, traditions and the religions of the Moroccans. After visiting and staying in Casablanca for four nights I got all of my belongings and I headed to the airport to go home.
