    Don't step in this

    Favorite thing: The sewers in Djenne are open air...... My guide claimed that they chiefs had been given the money to bury them in the ground but instead bought German cars and sent their kids abroad for schooling with it. I guess it adds to the charater of the place regardless.

    Visit Djenne on thusrday (Market day)

    Djenne - The mosquee behind the thrusday market

    Favorite thing: As Seratonin remarks, the best day on the week to visit Djenne is on thursday; you then add to the fascinating mosquee view the lively experience of a typical african market. For photographs as well, the market view adds a good perspective to the mosquee pictures.

    The roofs of Djenne

    Skyline of Djenne

    Favorite thing: If you`re in Djenne, it is well worth to climb on a roof to have a nice panoramic view of this town.

    If you`re not invited to tea in someones house who has access to a roof terrace, you can also ask a shopkeeper. Often they like it to guide you on the roof of their house. Of corse the hope that you`ll have a look on their shop afterwards ;-)

    The "grande mosque" in Djenne

    The mosque of Djenne

    Favorite thing: The famous mosque in Djenne is not to miss. It is sitated next to the maine square of the village, where all the taxi brousses comming from Mopti or Segou are arriving.
    You can walk around this impressive building, but when I was there (2001), it was not allowed for non-muslims to visit the enterior.
    You can reach Djenne comming from Mopti or Bamako (Segou) by Bus nd Taxi brousses. The best time to visit Djenne is when there is market day, as then there is more traffic than normal and the market itself is a colorful happening, right in front of the mosque.

    Fondest memory: Hanging around on Djenne's central square just in front of the mosque.
