Thanks for prayers and good vibes! All went according to plan. Apart from the rather infuriating fact that I do not have a single picture to show for it! Camera forgotten. But Australian TV and Malian TV were there and therefore there will be film from which I will presumably be able to get some stills! But not yet alas.
Spent afternon at the poolside at Hotel d'Amitie.
Bus to Djenne tomorrow at 5.30...
