... The parliament buildings, on grounds strangely in the middle of nowhere before coming upon the Sultan's palace and the remnants of two forts dating from the time of the Portuguese occupation.
The palace is built on the bank of a well protected harbor. Mountains protect it on three sides making this a highly desirable port for protection from pirates and other invaders. It stands to reason that the Portuguese built fortifications here. A museum is located on site but we don't ...

Before entering the mosque you have to remove them and leave them in a sort of ...
... the place where I am suppose to meet up with Kasper was another Costa. So I drove over there and we had a chat and after that went to see the Grand Mosque lit up at night and got some food at a turkish place. We finished off the evening with a shisha before we used the nice empty roads at 2 am to take a bit cruise over a mountain road from which you could see the City lights stretching forever. His place was very basic but I sleept ...
