Locals at Bamako warned us that Dogon people care just for money, so I didn’t have the best mood going there. After two and a half days at Dogon country I’m so happy things are not exactly like […]

It was a long day yesterday. From the 240 km. off-road route we got out in the afternoon, as we arrived to Tagounite. From there we drove 25 km. south towards M’ Hamid where the tarmac ends and the dunes start. It is a Merzuga style resort but more quiet and alternative. There, we met […]
