Apart from the Lizard mating season, no other news, unless one counts rumours spread by the French and American Embassies about the safety of travelling in Mali.
The Frenchman who was kidnapped many months ago far away on the border with Niger has been assassinated. This happened in Niger if I understand correctly. But the said Embassies have therefore pronounced some sort of no-go area north of Segou! They are even telling people to travel to Burkina Faso via Sikasso and God knows whatever else. I have not had any cancellations yet, and I am hoping that it is a storm in a tea cup once more. In fact this morning the garden was full of guests who will be on their way to Mopti and the Dogon country as usual...
