    African sunsets, full moon and thousand stars, what more do you need? Sunsets in Africa and in the desert are often spectacular.

    The sanddunes and the camels in Essakane were the perfect setting for the sunset (picture 2 & 3). The full moon (picture 4) made it even more special. Listening to the African music and dancing under the stars made the festival and the stay in the desert an experience of a lifetime.

    Also on the ferry to Timbuctu we saw a wonderful sunset (picture 5). What else can you wish ?

    Tummy bump

    it's a hole in the wall type joint near Flamme au Paix
    At first it seemed very dodgy and I was glad to be in the company of 2 male travellers. The music coming through the door made you think the whole of TB2 + 1/2/ of Mali was inside.
    The oversized bouncer at the door supported this initial impression...yet, once inside it was a totally different story.
    Relaxed, chilled and fun. The only problem was that the speakers couldn't cope with the volume at which the music was blaring out, but after an additional few beers that didn't seem to matter.
    The locals seemed keen on a type of "tummy bump" dance - Absolutely hilarious!
    Great night out.

    Dress Code: Anything goes - sandals, jeans, t-shirt
    Girls, make sure you are covered up though
