Is there any significance attached to the use of blue tiles @RooFlyer ?The minaret of the Kolon Mosque was built in 1127 and is an architectural masterpiece. 47m tall with10m foundations, when Gwngis Khan came to sack Bukhara, he was so dumbfounded by it, he ordered it spares.
It was the first time blue tiles were used in Central Asia.

I’m going to Chad next year. Can’t get Rooy interested in camping though... .I am usually very reluctant to travel with other people, as almost everyone rubs me the wrong way. (Not their fault - usually mine!) But knowing JohnM, and the fact that you two have done many shared trips successfully, I might just have to put my hand up and see if you two travel champions could allow me to join you on some trip next year?
