Rare and interesting photo's.
Looks better then I suspected. But dispite Timbouctou's beauty it gave me the creeps somehow. I would'nt feel safe for sure!

Mopti

Ok, time to move on to the next city, Mopti. Mopti is an inland port on the Niger river. The main part of the city is on a little thumb of land that is almost completely surrounded by water during the rainy season. Then there is another strip of the city that runs along the river itself.

I've been up there twice in the past year, so I got to see it both during dry season and just after rainy season.

Compare these three pictures of the river in March:

with these three pictures taken from almost the exact same place after the end of rainy season in November:

As you can see, the level of the river changes quite dramatically. Here are some more pictures of pirogues on the river by the port:

More pictures coming!

On March 26, Mali had communal (local) elections. So when I went to Mopti in March, there were campaign posters hanging all over the place:

I'm guessing that since the annual rainfall would be quite low the structures would remain intact. In regions of higher rainfall, they would have to cover the roofs with thatch-work or tiles.
