Mali and the Festival Au Desert 2008
What to say about the trip? It was hard, a lot harder than I expected, partially because I became ill part way through. It reminded me just how much I hate group travel, although at the time it was the best way to do what I wanted to do. It was far too rushed. The main problem was that the tour group, which was supposed to be two separate groups of 15 and 12, was actually run as one group of 27 which caused any number of problems.
