Hello friends! I am back from my trip as of monday evening and although I'm swamped with overdue work and homework, I wanted to throw up some pictures. Here's a few from my very very busy and incredibly awesome trip.
Famous mud mosque of Djenne (UNESCO world heritage site)
The morning view from my mat on the roof where I slept the first night we trekked in Dogon Country.
Dogon village where we spent another night on the roof (if you look to the right just above center, you can see the campement with the mats on part of the roof).
Chief of the village where we visited a Peace Corps volunteer for a day.
Yes, termite mounds can really get that big (and even bigger!)
Sunset on the Bani River in the port city of Mopti.
Regular traffic scene in the bustling capital city of Bamako, my home for two years. The locals have taken to calling it Obamako. *g*
My adorable goddaughter and my future sister-in-law. :-)
