A hotel guest, Olivier Verstraeten, who lives in Bamako has kindly sent these aerial shots of Hotel Djenne Djenno, taken about a month and a half ago, when the water was still standing high around the hotel. He delighted the Djenne population by circling around the town in a flying machine, sitting strapped into a little chair under a wingspan- no doubt this sort of flying machine has a name too, but I don't know what it is called.
The long building to the right houses most of the accommodation- it is possible to see the airconditioners on the roof. The large free standing building to the left of the hotel compound is the MaliMali studio, and the smaller one below it is the generator house.
