By the time we arrived at Boré in the fading evening light we had learned to our cost that rating a mention  on the Michelin 741 map of North Africa may be more  a cartographer's flight of fantasy than an indication of importance.  Still, we were passing through anyway and could see the outline of the purported mosque from the road, so nothing to lose really.

Turned out to be a busy little market town, rather pleasant until a couple of kids noticed me skulking around trying to take discrete photos.  From that moment on I was subjected to an endless torrent of begging from the cadeaux brigade.
