    you might take a look at my diary from yesterday.  (yes, that's a shameless plug).  It contains my journal entries from a visit to Timbuktu in 2003.

      your time in Mali, and I felt you really shared some of your sense of the place and the culture.  Thanks.  Maybe you'll write some more about what's going on now.

        that is very kind. :)  It is very special to me and if I can help share anything to help people get a feel for the beauty of Mali and its people, I will be very happy.  Have definitely been considering writing a diary on the current events but they're moving so fast, it's rather daunting.  Not to mention pretty complicated.  But I will give it a try.
