Timbuctou and the Tuareg
Inside a Tuareg tent: during the heat of the day there is little else to do but take it easy
Hundreds of years old manuscipts in Timbuctou which was a renowned ancient seat of learning
Hello people. I apologise for the downward trend in output for this blog. This is due to periods of hectic travel, followed by periods spent away from Internet access, followed by strange illnesses. None of this has been helped by the harsh heat of Subsaharan Africa or the slow Internet connections.
Bearing these factors in mind I realise I haven't even finished the last entry, but am keen to publish whatever time and energy will permit. So here are some more pretty pictures.
Ill fill in all the gaps and write things up as an when I get the chance. Honest.
Magical moments ensued when I showed the kids of the desert my camcorder and even my guide book for West Africa which they were engrossed by for a good half hour
