    ... trying to explain this address to a taxi driver. And I was right. The taxi driver had no idea, even with my ever so inaccurate Google Maps displayed in front of him, showing the location which was five blocks away from where it should have been. While in the taxi and trying to explain the address to him, it occurred to me. Via Recta? OK - so that's not Arabic. It's Latin. No help to me in a country that doesn't speak Latin.

    The prayer is is long - 150m? - with touritsts passing through in groups. About 50 peole are listening to an Imman preach in the centre, but tey are small in he space.

    The tomb (reputed) tomb of the headof John the Baptist is near the centre, marble stone tracery wwith a huge tomb inside. Far too big for just a head.
