Jan 31, 2008 - Hippos!

I saw hippos lounging in the water today and it was amazing! Wow! Our pinasse moved in close and what a sight. I did not think I would see any kind of wildlife like that because Mali is not a country for safari. This was a highlight of today because all we are doing is sailing up the river all day. The stars in the sky are tremendous and beautiful and bright. Camping is nice and my group is getting along well. One more day and I will be in Timbuktu.
