Arriving in Djenne was an exotic experience.

Ace stood waiting with the pick up at the Djenne Carrefour and took us towards the Bani crossing through a watery landscape where the trees only rose above the water. The road itself lay submerged in several places. Once we arrived at the Bani at sunset we had to wait at quite a distance away from the crossing. Ace called the ferryman, who sent his little daughter to guide us through the water: she walked in front of the car which progressed slowly for the last 500 m or so through the water to where the ferry laid waiting. The water reached the top of the wheels.
