Before I left the hotel received its yearly coating of mud, the crepissage. Malian labourers, just like their English council worker counterparts, spend a lot of time hanging around ‘supervising’ or making tea. But nevertheless they manage to finish a whole façade in just a few hours.
Some guests complain about the pungent smell, thinking it has something to do with bad drains. But it dries in a couple of hours and I believe it is a good ‘cultural experience’ for them, so I don’t cancel the work because of hotel guests, on the contrary, I try to have some tourists here.
