The famous mosque on market day
Near the mosque, a local wedding celebration was in progress. We stopped by to say hello, and met this woman who fascinated me. It appeared that I was even more fascinating to her, as she watched with extreme curiosity and bewilderment as I made this flower. After, she held it above her head like a trophy, for all to see, and then posed proudly for this photo.
What should you do when you're bored on a soutraman (the local public transport, which is like a minivan with tons of people crammed in the back)? Balloons?
Notice that the guy next to me woke up!
The other passengers were entertained, if not a bit confused. In the end, they applauded when we got to our stop and had to get off.
Our stop was Somodougou, a small town that normally did not see many visitors, but served as an entry point into Dogon Country due to a broken bridge up the road. We had to wait here for a little while, until our guide came to meet us.
