Moving on swiftly (because things move swiftly as well as at snails pace here, that is one of the contradictions of Africa.).
Having spent two days visiting Bamako and Keita, who is recuperating after a severe cold which has left him weak for the moment, alas. I left the capital the day before yesterday bound for
Bandiagara and a FORUM of African nations uniting at the same time at the G8summit.
This is somewhat unchartered territory for me, and I strayed into it quite innocently, believing I was going to a sort of African Nation trade fair, which I thought might be useful for MaliMali.
