From 4 to 8 April 2012, 11 people travelled to Morocco with 4Aviation. There we visited the Marrakech Air Show for the second time.
After a stopover at Paris / Charles de Gaulle the group arrived late in the afternoon (Wednesday 4 April) at the airport of Casablanca. Here three things immediately became apparent: the weather outside looked different than what you would expect of a country like Morocco (rainfalls, especially inland), officials of the passport control have all the time in the world, and annoyingly enough Air France/KLM failed to get all our luggage along with us to Casablanca. It was a short 3 hour drive from Marrakech so we were happy to finally go. Thanks to the new motorway between Casablanca and Marrakech, we had the chance to have a decent arrival time, was it not that our driver had other ideas. While driving the good man was called at least 50 times, and each time while engaged in conversation the speed of the minivan dropped to below 60 km/h. Nevertheless, with a stop halfway for smokers and food, we made half past nine in the evening at our hotel in Marrakech. Everything here was sorted in no time and we could even join the restaurant for dinner.
