love the dog - move or be swept!
And it did take a lot of dust to get that lazy dog to move :)

How was Mali? It looks so exotic. i would love to visit. What are the people like?
@Broom's Corner
Mali is exotic. I really enjoyed my assignment in Mali. It was also a trial of my patience because I'm used to working faster but it was harvest time and so people would rather be on their farms harvesting. The culture is generally slower than what I'm used to.

The most important thing though, is that the people are great. They are affable, extremely cultured and polite. I learnt a lot just from watching them.

And you? Are your neighbours still disturbing you with their 4-5 minutes bouts of pleasure?

@Nana Kofi, laughing out loud at the bouts of pleasure. Its been a while.LOL. I would so love to go to another African country. But I cannot imagine any place being slower than Accra. If anything, I want faster paced. I am sure Timbuktu must be more dynamic.

Th third photo is ike a musical. The expert way in which she balances the calabash high up and pours the grain....it's like she's holding a tambourine and dancing to the beat...and the golden grain pouring is ike a song gushing forth. Simply beautiful.
