Hmm, I was also going to say the ZCC but I am not sure that it is an actual building? More a gathering?


Without Googling it, I am going to guess one of the ones in Ethiopia?

Just the other day a friend was talking about this enormous church/mosque in Morocco. I suspect it is a mosque and I cannot remember where in Morocco, so this is a bit of a vague attempt.

My goodness - what an interesting reaction. I was going to mention that the Doc is disqualified from this round, but he understood anyway. Now there are folks too afraid to hazard a guess. I thought we lived in a liberated era! One must not be afraid to face your demons.
