This broad lake, about a 15 minute walk from the Old Quarter, could be an amazing attraction in this busy, bustling city, but unfortunatley it seems to be just a drainage outlet for the surrounding streets and not sufficiently valued at this point of time. It has a wonderful range of buildings and city-life experiences on display around its 14km+ shore line and could be major attraction for those moving out of the Old Quarter to the Mausoleum, Military History Museum etc. We had hoped to hire bicycles at the lake and ride around it but could not find anywhere to do this. Given the attention that is being paid to tourism in this amazing part of the world, I hope that in a few years this will be a major attraction for local and international visitors.
