I am in Mopti on banking business. The bank manager Monsieur Guindo is exceptionally nice to me and always let's me jump the very long queue. He invites me to his air conditioned office where I can do whatever it is I have to do in great comfort and style. In return I have to speak English to M. Guindo, who is a great Anglophile and who wants to practise his English. M. Guindo is also an avid Elvis Presley fan, and both the banking business and the English conversation class is conducted with the soundtrack of such gems as 'Jailhouse Rock' and 'Blue Suede Shoes' blasting out in the background. Posted by Picasa
