My good friend Clive Rahn visited for Christmas and had a whale of a time!

Here are some of the highlights of his visit (chosen entirely by me!)

(From top left to bottom right in the most logical way:)

1. A New Year’s Day boat trip on the Niger River.
2. Visiting the village of Koura, where Rob was working.
3. Ascending the “Tour d’Afrique” by the stairs (phew!)
4. Yummy gluten-free meringues the the house of friends.
5. The market gardens on the banks of the Niger.
6. Getting close to the locals on a Sotrama.
7. A trip on a Malian train – not bad at all!
8. Driving the Mitsubishi on rough dirt roads to give Rob a break.
9. A visit to the amazing Dogon Country.

Wow – all that and more in just three weeks! Such fun! Clive is a seasoned globe-trotter and also came to Benin for Christmas 3 years ago (proof here) although we know him from England (see here).

Hope you’re enjoying the cooler British weather again now, mate!!
