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.
- From BBC News World profiles: Mali.
- From PRI - a piece that aired on the third, on one of the Malian Presidential candidates, a BYU graduate, a Mormon in this Muslim country. Imagine if we both, US and Mali, were to end up with Mormon presidents?
Stay tuned for some links on the food and culture...
