The post-apocalyptic streets of Casablanca

All advice said “Get out of Casa as soon as you get in.” It wasn’t that bad, but it didn’t offer much beyond decaying Colonial and art deco architecture and an impressive, modern mosque that’s still under construction in parts. C’est tout.

The country of Morocco is about the same size as the state of California. Visiting Casa is like gong to Cali and heading straight for Fremont…a post-apocalyptic Fremont, that is, where the streets are lined with cactus fruit and the men are completely in charge.
