The other evening two young Fulani shepherds walked past with an orphaned lamb. We could not resist this little creature so we bought it for the hotel I gave him the name Barou to the delight of the staff: Keita is called Oumar Keita, but only his mother calls him Oumar. All Oumars of Mali are called Barou, just as all Modibos are called Van for reasons far beyond my comprehension.
