Back in Djenné after just two days in Ségou. The new tourist season is well and truly upon us, and last night I had to sleep on the roof with a mosquito net while I gave up my room to an American couple. The garden was dotted with tents, although I don’t normally allow camping. A group of fresh faced young Frenchmen arrived last night and since I was feeling in a good mood I let them put up their tents amongst the bananas. There were over thirty people eating in the garden under the stars, and many had cocktails on the roof at sunset of course, where the view is still one of pirogues and fishermen, although the water is now receding rapidly.
