And here is the beginnings of the staircase…
Harry our architect told me that in his studies he had noted that Djenne was possibly the southernmost town in the world which can be said to have been laid out on Etruscan principles- that is to say there were literally four quarters of the ancient town, each housing a different trade- the blacksmiths, the potters etc.
Well, at least this is what I think he said, I was engaged simultaneously in writing out the bill for the couple rom the German embassy who was in a hurry.
The bar/restaurant seen here in embryo reminds me of the ruins of an antique city somewhere...
