The Walled City of Harar

How could I pass this place up. Yes, I'm not very religious but I do tend to like Muslims...they tend to be good honest folks. It is a great place to wander around in with something like 360+ alleyways to walk down and what seems like a mosque around every corner. This is a place where everyone gets along. You will see Mosques next to Churches etc. I was only here for a day or so but enjoyed every minute of it.
