I went riding this evening to the ancient site of Djenne-Djeno. It was the last time until perhaps November. The water now covers the green fields and Napo nearly got us stuck in the mud. I have had a few worried enquiries from future guests at the hotel-will they be able to get through? Is the hotel going to be open?
Although it may seem quite alarming, this is in fact quite normal: Djenne is situated on an island in the floodplains of the Niger inland Delta. The fields are supposed to flood, and all is well. It is just a bit muddy and tiresome if one's hotel is built of mud!
