The day ended with the ceremonial planting of three trees on the land by the MaliMali studio, which we intend to make the beginning of a Botanical Garden in Djenné, dedicated to plants used in traditional inks , fabric dyes and medicines. Andrea planted one of the trees  and here we are sporting MaliMali outfits and hats !
I have ridden Petit Bandit for the last time across the dusty plain, but Andrea will now take over- she was once in charge of a stud farm in Brazil ! But now Andrea  is instead  in charge of what I called ‘the mysterious Instituto Rizoma’ one of the sponsors for MaliMali Projects. She will remain here for a month or so, and work with children and teenagers in the Djenné schools in order to begin an exchange with Brazilian school children. I am happy someone is staying at the hotel and giving Petit Bandit some  exercise !
