The year 2006.

From Segou to Essakanne, to Segou to Bamako. Vienna and back down south to Bamako. And again Vienna and back down south to Bamako. (We get married 2nd time in Vienna).

A little Guinea adventure (Nov and Dec) and back to Bamako.

And this is where 2006 ends. And what a great year 2006 was. I know I have been extremely lucky/privileged. It is time to make a step back/think back/ponder as it is so prominently put in H1 on the top of the start page.

Back in Vienna 31/Dec/2006 Hasna has become huge/entered month 8. We look forward to the birth of twins soon.

Journey in 2006.
