Our first impressions are a very clean well laid out and more spacious town around the ...
... the great Mosque as their own, whatever faith you may have, if any.
To give you an idea of the size of this, we were there for about 2 hours and had to go looking to find the grand cathedral - we could hear Mass starting – but couldn’t see where.
