Larabanga Mosque

Mud and stick mosque in Larabanga Ghana - its interesting to see although the locals are not too seasoned in dealing with tourists (hounding for cash donations etc)

It reminds me of one of those huge termite mounds. Architecture in harmony with the surroundings, perhaps?

Whaa...at a treat! Completely strange. Looks like confection. Might easily be chocolate cake and icing. Did you visit inside I wonder.

Lovely organic building and I think the cyclist is smiling at you. Were you able/allowed to take photos inside, that would be really interesting? When were you there? :OD
