What is it? Looks a bit like a mosque. In fact, it is another building one could say was a tribute to another religion: money!

We took a drive after checking in to our resort and found ourselves travelling through an industrial oil refinery plant. Wasn't just a factory, there was acres of it and our road ran through the middle of it all.

It was rather awe-inspiring, the sheer scale of production. Huge tanks to store different oil products. Refining plants with towers looking like huge orchestral brass intruments. Pipelines that ran race tracks traversing the real estate.

Then a huge power plant from which four line towers emerged, zigzagging away towards neighbouring towns and states.

This only a half hour from our resort!
