A nice excursion can be a trip with a prirogue on the river. If you make a somewhat lonegr trip, you can visit nearby villages (Kaladoga e.g.). Go to the Bar Bozo and you will easily find a boat owner willing to take you. Dusk is a good time.

The Mosque in Mopti was built in 1935. It was modelled after the one in Djenne . It is hard to be let in if you are not a muslim, but you can climb the roof of one of the houses nearby to let you have a sneak view of the mosque.
