A view of – a small part of – the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. In ‘real’ life, of course, this would be shimmering white marble (topped with gold) against a clear blue sky.
Oradour-sur-Glane is a village not far from here. In 1944 it was the scene of a Nazi atrocity, which can be read about here. A new village was built nearby after the war, but the original is now preserved as a permanent museum and memorial to the 642 named victims.
