Happy Friday! Please enjoy a few images of some of the world’s great buildings:

The Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca, Morocco is the largest mosque in Africa and its minaret is the world’s tallest. The building is exquisitely beautiful, inside and out. Casablanca is a commercial hub, with little of interest to tourists, but this mosque is a must see. Since the international airport is in Casablanca, most visitors spend their first night there. All of our tours include a stop at the mosque, before heading out to see the rest of the country.
This is the mortuary temple of one of ancient Egypt’s very few female pharaohs, Hatshepsut. The design is unusual for Egyptian temples. Don’t miss it if you’re in the Luxor area.

The Parthenon on the Athens acropolis is one of the most influential buildings in western architecture.
