    Children at Nini.

    Children: of course, they will run after you, asking for “cadeau” (gift), “stylo Bic” (ball pen), or “bonbons” (sweets).

    They will hold your hand while you visit their village.
    Cute... and suffering malnutrition.

    An old guy in the Toguna at Indelli.

    It's hard to like some Dogon practices in particular concerning women.

    But I have to say that Dogon probably are among the most friendly and easy people I’ve ever met.
    Open minded and always a good sense of humour. In one word: they are kind.

    The only risk for a tourist exists if he comes without a guide. He will then certainly infringe a taboo. This can be very time consuming but it’s never dangerous. So, if it happens, keep quiet, discuss (I mean bargain the fine…) and pay the fine, which is usually no more than the price of a chicken.
    But don’t underestimate the problem: there are really many taboos in Dogon country, and only a very good guide would know them.

    Baobab's fruits.

    The fruits of the baobab can be eaten. Cut them and suck the kind of white stuff inside. Refreshing!

    Gardens at Beniouma.

    Dogon grow all kinds of vegetable and mainly onions.

    Fantastic gardens in small squares to make watering easier, bright green, fresh. A permanent fight against dryness...
