We will drive to the Middle Atlas Mountains and elevations above 8,000 ft. The High Atlas Mountains, reaching to 12,000 feet and higher, are the backdrop for our drive. We will venture to Riad and out into the vibrant Jemaa al Fanaa, full of snake charmers, peddlers, and performers. We will visit the Koutoubia Mosque, one of the most important landmarks in Marrakech. We will drive to Casablanca, and visit the mosque of King Hassan II and the Museum of Judaism, the only Jewish Museum in an Arab country.
