6:30am in Bamako and we are off to a small village 2 hours from here for the annual gifting of school supplies.  From what we’ve been told, there will be a  greeting with the village, the presentation of the supplies, and then an afternoon and night of ceremonial mask dances.  Tomorrow has us making Shea butter followed up by more dance.  Back the day after.  I’ll post more then!

Picture of the three of us at Le Dimplomat the other night.  Travel truism; always bring clubbing clothes no matter the itinerary!;-)
