Welcome to this website’s newest feature! Every Friday (with hopefully rare exceptions when things like travel preclude it), I’ll be posting a photo from my previous worldwide adventures. Some of those pics will have appeared, or will appear in the future, in substantive blog posts here; others will only be seen in these weekly “Friday Photo” posts.
To kick off the series, here’s a look at the Hassan II Mosque (Arabic: مسجد الحسن الثاني) in Casablanca, Morocco:
Completed in 1993, this mosque was designed by the French architect Michel Pinseau and can accommodate 25,000 worshippers. The minaret, ascending to a height of 210 meters (689 feet), is the tallest in the world.
This photo was taken during my visit to Morocco in February 2011.
