Well, the guide books don't exactly promote Bamako as a 'must see' place, and after arriving in Mali and spending 2 days there I also found it hot and oppressively crowded. Three weeks later I was forced to spend 10 days in Bamako, and consequently had time to modify my opinion. Just takes a bit of time to get the feel of the place.

Bamako, the friendly city

Bamako, an African capital city that is small enough to be friendly to the stranger and yet big enough to supply most of the things you need. I first came to Mali in 1999 when I spent seven weeks, setting up research into mother tongue education in schools. I went back in October 2000 and stayed until March 2001. We lived in Bamako the capital and worked in a school on the outskirts of town. We loved the country and arrived back here to live and work recently. In these pages I will try and give you a little taste of life here. I'm still finding out more about the country I live in and as I do, I'll post more pictures and information.

Even though the main reasons for visiting Mali are located elsewhere, I decided to spend some time in Bamako after initially landing there and before heading on to the more renowned locales. I feel that doing so was definitely a good idea, primarily because of the capital's wonderfully vivacious character.
