Last Saturday was the yearly crossing of the Niger by the Fulani herdsmen and their cattle- hundreds of thousands heads of cattle swam across the river from the northern to the southern shore- the dry season is approaching and the grazing is finished in the northern regions closer to the Sahara. The dry wind Harmattan blows.
This it THE spectacle of the year: and what did we do? Lured by the bright lights of Bamako yet again we spent the weekend in the city buying yet more air conditioners, pillows and kettles.. Posted by Picasa
