Mali -A little armchair travel for you while I'm away

By Thursday I'll be en route to Mali a small land-locked country in West Africa that many of us know very little about. While I'm gone, exploring ancient cliff dwellings, giant mosques made of mud bricks, and the Festival au Desert, I thought it might be interesting to share some information with you about my destination.
