Photographer's Note

In one of my previous posts ( Sorry, lady, I wasn't pointing at you! ), I have described the reasons that make Komotini such a unique place for Greece, about the Muslim minority etc.

Here you see one of the greatest Mosque of the town, Yeni Camii (I think it means "New Mosque"), the other one is Eski Camii (it means "Old Mosque"), although Yeni Camii is older than the other. The wall that you see on the left side of the picture belongs to the clocktower that has become the "trademark" of Komotini, and you will see it also in one of my future posts.

On the yard of the mosque you can find the office of the Mufti of Komotini, Mr Tzemali Metso, the spiritual leader of the Muslims of Komotini. I thank him from my heart, because he gave me permision to photograph the interior of the Mosque, during prayer (you 'll see a photo of that soon).
