Very interesting! I love the statues. they fit so well in the surroundings, just like the skyscraper which torns out like a mountain. I would love to see the historic buildings restorated.

AND STAY TUNED!!! Today is the 50th Anniversary of Malian Independence, and there are a couple of big projects that have just been inaugurated. I'm going to go out today and take some pictures of those projects, and try to match them up with some pictures I took over the past year. I hope to get 5-6 pairs of "Before and After" pics to show some of the changes that have happened here in the past year.

BEFORE AND AFTER

Ok, so after going back and checking, I didn't have as many "before" pictures as I would have liked, but I think the few I have will still be kind of cool. I think I took the three before pictures about a year and a half ago, and I posted them all earlier on this thread. But I'll post them again here so that you can compare.

First, the Peace Monument:

Next, the Malibya governmental complex:

And finally, just the view in a residential neighborhood:

Sorry, like I said, I just didn't have as many before shots as I would have liked. I guess during the construction phase, I just wasn't terribly impressed.
