    I visited family in Scotland a few years ago and anyone who has read about the Knights Templar or the Freemasons (or is a Mason) should take a visit to Rosslyn Chapel on the outskirts of Edinburgh.

    It is an amazing structure, though is getting into a serious state of disrepair due to various factors (weather, stone type used, pollution, etc). Some efforts are being made to preserve the building, like putting a roof over the roof, and cash grants from organisations to preserve the building and its contents.

    The first two pics are of the exterior, showing the structure of the roof and grime- and weather-affected stone.

    The ceiling (pics 3 and 4) show the depiction of five different types of flowers in the construction as well as carved images of maize plants, known to have originated in North America and thought to have been discovered by Columbus in 1492, almost 50 years after Rosslyn Chapel was built.

    Anyone who is into Freemasonry will recognise the two pillars (pics 5 and 6), the right one also known as the Apprentice Pillar - look it up.

    Pics 7 to 12 show intricate carvings on the walls, ceiling and pillars.

    Pic 13 is in the crypt, down a flight of stairs from the chapel. Pic 14 is thought to depict a scene from the Plague, showing death as a prince.

    The last four images were taken on the roof scaffolding walkway, where you can go up and see how the "roof over the roof" is helping to protect the old roofing for a bit longer.

    If you are ever in Scotland, I highly recommend visiting this chapel. Alternatively, you can read more about it here... http://www.rosslynchapel.org.uk/

    Had the opportunity in Barcelona to quickly visit the Familia Sagrada church close-up It has been under construction for more than 100 years and it is expected to continue at least 10 more years to look like the original design by Gaudi (3rd pic) (lots more pictures also on Google) fascinating attention to detail

    In February 2011, I was on project in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi is a magnificent structure, built over a period of about 15yrs and was not completed until the Sheikh who commissioned it, had died. He is buried in his own little burial site, just off to the side of the main mosque, but you are strictly not allowed to take photos of that site.

    You can find out more about the mosque here... http://www.szgmc.ae/en/

    The first pic is of a small mosque that was situated in front of the hotel I stayed in. The rest are all of the Grand Mosque itself.

    From my point of view and interest is that many of the platteland towns was established after a church was built, which facilitate people coming together on a regular basis. This in turn had the entrepeneurs (many from Jewish origin) starting shops and other industries to service the farming communities.
    The word Dzombo is derived from the Tsonga word Dzombolo meaning ‘to wait for something that is slow in coming.
    Named after one of the Magnificent Seven, sadly killed by a Poacher Oct 1995 @ 50 years old.
