It is hard to get to Djenné, but like all good things it is worth the effort. One has to wait, sometimes for hours, for enough vehicles to fill up the the ferry. After six pm one has to either sleep at the crossing or pay a lot. If one comes with a motor cycle one can cross by pirogue at any time of day or night.
In the dry season one wades across, like the first time I arrived to stay (see second entry, July). It is all part of the magic of Djenn√©. I should of course be pleased about the bridge which has been financed and which will be in place within three years: after all it will bring more tourists and more people to the hotel. But I like it like this... Posted by Picasa
