Just about ready to leave

We're almost ready to go... just need to drop into the office for a few hours tomorrow so we get get a proposal out the door - then a frenzy of packing and last minute shopping, I'm sure... and we're off.

Yesterday our friend Djeneba dropped by the office with mail that had come for Fode and Rebecca while they've been in Mali, and we took a snap (on my new FujiFilm E900) to take to her Mom in Bamako.

Our month will start in Casablanca where we will meet up with our good friends Becky, Stu, and Nila. We'll hang with them in Casablanca and Marakesh for a week. Then we fly to Bamako. We'll visit our neice Rebecca, her husband Fode, and their daughter Julia Fante for several days, then leave on our up-country trip to Segou, Djenne, Mopti, Pays Dogon, and Timbuktu. And then a few more days to just visit in Bamako. Doria's sister Julie (Rebecca's mother) and her other daughter Sarah will be joining us for the Malian part of this adventure.

More soon.

I'd love to be travelling as well! Your check-in from Marocco sounded great. Enjoy!
