large mosque

While I was out early on Friday morning taking pictures of the sunrise, I took a few more of random sights. Starting with the new mosque which is either completed or near completion. There hasn’t been an opening ceremony, yet.

It has been interesting watching this building being built over the last year and a half.

The building on the far right is our apartment building. I suspect that we will hear the call to prayer loud and clear from there.

The mosque is a beautiful addition to the skyline.

The tree in the picture below is interesting and hardy.

You never know what you will see, including feral donkeys wondering around. The city is expanding and encroaching on their usual territory.
