No trace of Humphrey Bogart but a Rainbow

A rainbow outside of Hassan II Mosque after a down pour in early November.....What a beautiful scene. For a minute, I was thinking there was something at the end of the rainbow. Somewhere over the rainbow someone smiling at me & I want to fly over it to heaven...what a fit outside such a beautiful mosque ! Although I am not religious but I felt the power right there from heaven with the light shine upon me from the sky out of the rain clouds - What a beautiful world ~ Ha I guess somewhere there will be a hole for me to fall into & suck into hell...Yikes ! I better watch my steps !

Although the weather during my trip in Casablanca was stormy & rainy, I was glad that I saw this rainbow by this stunning white marble tall mosque surrounded by the Corniche seaside.

The Corniche seaside has a nice view of the Atlantic Ocean.
I waved to the north-west direction & I was hoping my friends at home - New York could see me. It was just a "Sarah Palin" kind of act and I just thought New York "USA" is a next door neighbor country that I can see how my babies doing from Casalanca - It's right over the sea & right next to the ocean border. I think I made myself a fool for a moment :)

Was it just a moment or am I always a fool ?

I will know "as time goes by " ~

Yeah I forgot to show U the tall Mosque -here u go

Ooops, it is not as white as I described but its made of white marble and the weather wasn't that great that day when I took the picture. It was late in the afternoon and the sunset made it look a bit ivory .

Notre-Dame de Lourdes - Catholic Church

Stunning Stain Glass inside the church.

One of the stain glass I found interesting as shown here. I am not a very artisitic, but it is an interesting piece with a lot of diversity - at least to me.
I see a black african, asian man, a native american indian, a white man & a moroccan ??
