A short stop in Djenne on my way back to Bamako was mandatory in order to admire the world's largest mud building ever built, a gigantic mosque that reminds us that Mali was, in the 12th century, the religious, intellectual and commercial heart of West Africa. The colourful and hectic market that takes place each Monday around the mosque (bringing all the farmers of the region together) is the cherry on the cake.
