Weekly Photo Challenge: Wall, Whispers of a Crushed Heart

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Wall.”

The Kaole ruins is situated about 5 kms south of the town Bagamoyo in Tanzania. These ruins date from the 13th century and are the remains of two mosques.

The remaining walls bear witness to the early influence of arab traders on East Africa. I took these pictures and  wondered about the many traders, pilgrims and even slaves who had walked here before me.

The port Bagamoyo was the main port from which slave traders shipped slaves to other parts of the world . The name literally means Place of the Crushed heart.
