The New York Times asked readers to submit a photograph from a culturally significant trip they’ve taken. Some of my favorites are below. Click here to see the rest. I really wish I would have submitted one myself!

This 16th-century madrasa is North Africa’s largest and one of its best preserved. Now a museum, the school and adjoining mosque offer wonderful examples of middle period Islamic decorative arts, attracting thousands of religious and artistic pilgrims each year.
