Location of the Week


For this week’s spotlight location, azurblue takes us into a look at this special place in Mali, Africa known as the City of Mud, which is recognized as a UNESCO Heritage site.

Join us in the wonderful world of mud! Who said that mud was useless and an eyesore? Take a look of this place where people live in gorgeous mud structures in, as shared to us by azurblue – the highlight in this city is the Banco Mosque – known as the world’s largest building made of mud!

If you’re planning a trip anytime soon though, be aware that there’s only a single tourist lodging are in the place – better book quick!

For more details check out Djenné - City of Mud Mali, Africa

Congratulations azurblue – 10 piggies will travel soon to your account, enjoy!
