Of Inks, Dyes, Medicines and Magic

 Africa is behaving according to its nature: that is to say that it is either totally unbearable to be here or the most fantastic and exciting experience imaginable. During the 24hours of any given day, one will visit both these places several times...
But for once, let’s not get bogged down in the downside extremity, which involves bad sewing and bad plumbing and other unimaginably tedious matters, but instead wind our way through the dusty streets of Djenné  directly to the Manuscript Library, where Yelfa my favourite Grand Marabout de Djenné is cooking up very exciting things.... it is all in preparation for a great conference  culminating on the 8th of April.
