The year 2008.

After Ouagadougou back to Bamako. In Jan I fly back to Vienna, pack up my family, fly via Casablanca back to Bamako, Mali then Senegal, Guinea Bissau. On my own I head south, pass Guinea into Sierra Leone, then Liberia, into Cote d'Ivoire and back to Bamako.

Summer means touring Europe. With and without family. Then I turn back to Bamako, where the year ends.

And - back to Bamako, where else.
