Just back from what is possibly my last ride on Petit Bandit for some time.
During my ride I received two phonecalls, both informing me that the Army has not fled Mopti/Sevare. There was some movement of army vehicles and rumours started spreading that the Army had taken flight. Instead they are regrouping it appears. But nevertheless I have decided to leave for Segou and then on to Bamako on Tuesday: just a week or two earlier than planned.
