    Toilets...

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Shower at Nombori, but could be everywhere else.

    Sorry for the face on the picture: trying not to breathe…

    You never have to ask where are the toilets… Just follow the smell.

    They are always clean, but since they are only made of a big underground tank without a siphon, the smell doesn’t stay inside…

    Usually, showers (a barrel with water and a bowl) are just beside the toilets which is not very pleasant.
    You keep the smell in the nose and finally after the shower, you don’t know if you are clean or not…!

    Sauces...

    For sauces...

    Dogon use strange sauces made of strange things… Dried leaves of baobab for example.
    If you are courageous, try the “ Da ”. It’s made of mutton’s head and tripe cooked with onions, sorrel and chilli. Strong taste but not bad. The only problem is that Dogon eat it for breakfast… Too hard !

    But don’t worry too much: they usually don’t offer “ Da ” or other strange things to tourists. Food is rather good and simple, not very varied: a lot of chicken with couscous, pasta, sweet potatoes and a tomato sauce.

    For the breakfast, very good doughnuts.

    Stairs...

    Coming down from the

    Dogon stairs are quite unusual, at least for Occidental legs… They are just cut in trunks and are seldom steady. They are found everywhere in villages (to climb on terraces) and even in the countryside…! Dogon can run in such “staircases”.

    Cliffs at Yougo-piri

    The paths sometimes follow the top of very impressive cliffs. Be prudent: you are not like the Tellems who were supposed to fly !
