Keita phoned me this morning, just when I had written about how great life was at the moment.
I had somehow felt that of course things could not continue on this great joyful wave for very long...and I was right. Keita called.
Beigna died yesterday, buried in a collapsing mine shaft in the gold fields of southern Mali.
Beigna was there at the very beginning of our life in Djenne. He was the fun, kind, lovely but impossible barman at Hotel Djenné Djenno who was sacked and reemployed a hundred times. Finally he knew he could no longer come back and he left to find fortune in the goldfields like so many before him.
We are so sorry. Keita is so sad- Beigna was his 'Petit'...
A LA K'A DAYORO SUMA
(see 'Beigna' in blogsearch above+ see 'The pursuit of Dreams in the Goldfields of Mali' )
Good things only!

Is Mali still a sovereign state?
Of course it will be the same thing in Menaka goes the argument.
