Nov 13, 2006 - Djiguibombo - Koro

El ultimo pueblo del Pais Dogon fue Djiguibombo. Ali almorzamos y el grupo se separo.

Nothing I could except hope nothing had broken and I took advantage of the stoppage time to photograph roadside vegetation while they resecured the ropes. Next stop was a police checkpoint and then Immigration. My passport...

Sep 20, 2004 - Mali, Mali, magnificent Mali

What an amazing place this is. I arrived via bus from Burkina Faso one week ago. It was in Burkina Faso that I fell in love with Africa, but Mali. . .Mali is even better! With a loose plan based on advice from my guide book, I headed to Koro, a town just across the Burkina-Mali border. I was planning to head to Dogon country. I knew I would need a guide and preferably an English speaking one. I had had a cryptic conversation with four French volunteers/tourists on my bus.
