The Wazir Khan Mosque (Punjabi and Urdu: مسجد وزیر خان ; Masjid Wazīr Khān) is 17th century mosque located in the city of Lahore, capital of the Pakistani province of Punjab. The mosque was commissioned during the reign of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan as part of an ensemble of buildings that also included the nearby Shahi Hammam baths. Construction of Wazir Khan Mosque began in 1634 C.E., and was completed in 1641. #wikipedia
Taroko National Park, in my opinion is the most scenic area in Taiwan; definitely one of the most scenic in the world. Over many years the Liwu river has cut a deep gorge through the spine of Taiwan’s central ridge of mountains. The Taiwanese cut, tunneled, bridged a spectacular cross country “highway” using this gorge producing one of the scenic wonders of the world. 226 men died in the process. A typhoon closed off the road several years ago and it has reopened but the path has been altered.
Another adventure in our quest for Sephardic heritage was to do a night walking tour in the narrow streets of the old Jewish Quarters of Sagunto.

Quiero Cultura is one of the tour operators that offer outdoors walking tours to historic and cultural places of Sagunto.
Tour included stops in several places to display slides to illustrate and complement the outdoors learning experience.
We crossed several arches and visited two medieval jewish cemeteries outside the Castle of Sagunto.
Tours are organized each Saturday during summer months and once a month the rest of the year.
Other night walking tours include visits to all churches, way of the cross, and cemeteries. Outdoors classrooms at night.
We continue finding new information about our #SemahDeValencia family and our Sephardic heritage.
