Happy New Year faithful readers!
Our good friends Phil Johnston and Jill Cordes visited us last week. Here we are celebrating Christmas (a day late):
Phil’s a great photographer. While we were out walking just a couple blocks from our house, he took this picture of a very sweet little girl:
On Saturday we took a cruise on the Niger, where Phil snapped this photo of two fishermen at sunset:
We also went to the “fetish” market, where animal parts are sold for use in animist rituals:
Copernicus (a.k.a. Mr. C) seemed to like our guests, especially when they gave him leftover turkey:
Phil and Jill are touring Dogon country this week, and Allyson and I will meet them in Timbuktu next weekend.
It’s hard to believe, but we leave Mali in less than four weeks!
