A West African Journey

Travel in West Africa is not easy, but it certainly is
interesting. Our route from Senegal through much of Mali - sometimes on
fairly good roads and sometimes on unmarked sand tracks. When our vehicle
seemed to be stuck on top of a sand dune at midnight near the Maritanian
border in western Mali we kept telling ourselves that it would make a good
story if we survived. Often the worst travel experiences are the most fun
to talk about in retrospect.
