|Departure from the somewhat civilsation that is Bamako beckons as we are making the trek to Timbuctou via Djenne and Mopti.
We ran into another overland truck that did the drive up to Timbuctou recently so we're going to give it a bash ourselves...Surely it can't be that hard after the nightmare that was the Mauretania/Mali border crossing? One way to find out I suppose but we re now well stocked with all the essentials ie; beer,rum,whisky,chocolate and pringles and of course water,fuel and food.
A cruise up the mighty Niger river will be part of the journey for a few days where we'll be going from Djenne to Mopti which will be a nice change from sitting in a truck which in fact is a nice change from digging out a truck....
So once again no contact with the outside world for a few days which I have to say I'm enjoying,5 star luxury or not....
Hope everyone is well and it was good to catch up with the rugby scores where the mighty Wallabies gave the so called world champion jokes England a beating at Twickenham and the Aussie cricket team flogging the Kiwis.....Life is good!!
