This was a “waiting in airports” project. Not much in the way of beautiful hd footage or general cinematography, but I hope you can appreciate some of these scenes, many of which include dancing children. If not, just close your eyes and listen to the music: “Sabali” by Amadou & Mariam (see a previous post about music in Mali for more on them). Sabali means patience in Bambara. Throughout the song, Mariam tells us that patience is worth everything. With that in mind, have some patience when you watch the video, and don’t read into it too much.
If you are subscribed to the blog and the video is not showing up, here is the link
Next up: a bus ride from Bamako to Dakar. Or something else. Maybe a look at the massive thunderstorms that form in the Sahel around this time of year. Hmmm.
