eating the dust of the savannah

The best stage of the Bamako 2013 yet! 350 kilometers (including a few extra due to getting lost) on dirt tracks and across the savannah as the crow flies. No GPS coordinates, we had to find places and people by their name. That was a lot of fun with locals who don't speak any language but that of their own tribe and who sometimes don't even know the name of the village they live in. Nevertheless we collected almost all the points and should catch up a little bit in the race ranking now.
We saw rabbits, squirrels, lots of birds, and even more cattle. I was surprised how many cows there are in Senegal.
Tomorrow we will enter the Niokolo Koba national park, we hope to see some bigger mammals there.
