Mopti is an industrial and tourist city situated in the center of the country, on the shore of Niger River. Maybe it has the busiest river port of the country where hundreds of pinasses (traditional boats made of wood) are loaded and unloaded day and night. This port is a good place to see the Mopti’s everydaylife and to do a little of people watching. Other interesting spots are, of course, its mud mosque (not as impressive as Djenée's mosque) that dominates Mopti’s landscape, the Women’s Market, the Peul suburb called Teikiriy, its Sudanese style buildings and its crafts market. After lunch take a pinasse to visit different bozo villages not far from the city until sunset.
