Malien our plumber is here from Mopti and we are doing an overhaul of the Djenne Djenno ceramic wash basins. They have served well – see blog picture of our Malien and Baji the potter at the installation of the basins in November 2006. Malien is a walking juke box, and I can always tell in which room he is working by the sound of his portable radio playing Malian griot music.
And finally I should mention that Keita is getting some physiotherapy on his hand and arm in Tunis, while he is waiting to go into his sterile cell for the stem cell transplant – possibly this coming Monday. He is in good spirits and has become a natural focus point at the clinic for the assorted Malians who are there.
