AU REVOIR MALI...WELL NOT QUITE...
Thank you Connie for your feedback...I have always been told I had no rhythm & danced to my own beat...until I got to Mali...where the locals thought I was a great dancer...but now I dance with an Ethiopian feel...& I have discovered rhythm...funny that! Two more Mali blogs to come...just faces...then Ethiopia...stunning.

FROM THE WEDDING PLANNER...
Renew your vows at Timbuktu?..great idea & I've given you clues...but its already been done!...I proffer a suggestion: ...being carried into a rock hewn Church in Lalibela, Ethiopia...the happy couple flanked by a collonade of priests carrying Ethiopian crosses...mmm...I like the idea...worth watering??? This was our "wet weather" option...feel free to use it!

First "Our Tuareg Wedding"...then "Au Revoir Mali"
Hi Laetitia, It is a buzz to be able to share travel experiences with like-minded people around the World...most others run a mile to avoid holiday snaps...but those "in the know"...can't get enough of it! Thanks for your support...and keep dancing (I hear you're quite a good dancer)!

VISIT MALI...NOT NOW
Current Advice Level: "Do not travel" We continue to advise Australians not to travel to any part of Mali because of political instability following a military coup, ongoing military operations against rebel groups in the north, the activities of armed groups, including terrorists and bandits, and the threat of kidnapping. Australians in Mali advised to leave by commercial means, if it is safe to do so. Same applies to Argentinians. When it settles down I can put you in touch with the best person if you wish.
