Al-Dar-Al-Beydha, or as we say in (heh) English - Casablanca

It was a French protectorate until the 1950s, so it's probably not surprising to see a lot of French-Arabic signs, and to find out that French is still the second language in the schools. Humphrey Bogart's Hollywood back-lot version of Casablanca was fairly flattering, but our little group enjoyed a half-day tour with the added excitement of trying to cross streets without getting run down.
