FACES OF MALI...BAMAKO TO SEGOU



The Malian people are handsome...the men are peacocks...and the women are too busy working...

The peoples of the Bambara, Dogon, Bozo, Bobo, Felani, Songhai, Tuareg... handsome all.

Welcome to the first instalment of "Faces of Mali".

I will show photos of the stunning scenery, scenes, events, in my 'Images of Mali' blogs.

Enjoy and regards,

Dancing Dave (who danced his way through Mali culminating in his Tuareg wedding at Timbuktu!!!)
