Trip to tombuktu

The port at Mopti


On the boat


random pic


sailing boat


scenic river + boat + village arrangement


For all you ladies, Simon at the sunset (sorry there was nothing better)


Sunset


again


was stunning... so nice just to watch the world go by


sleepy mikey


village


one of three times we were stuck on a sankbank. Levered the boat off with poles to get moving again


wind powered? we had two straight six diesel engines


Hippo... "Maree" in bumbara, sorry any Marie's reading this



more hippos


they're really big


boat a bit like ours


Musa... he was always in trouble and showing off constantly


made it


running to be in a picture




our boat carried plenty of this - rice and grain


No grain sacks to lie on for the return journey, so we sat on the roof


this made the 3 meals a day of fish and rice tolerable




lads


oh for a shotgun (kidding)




we had 4" clearance to the water line on the way there, maybe 4 foot on the way back


the kitchen
