The village is just outside of Koulikoro and about an hour from Bamako, Mali's capital. We're not quite sure what the land will be to us - maybe a weekend getaway place or summer camp for when we have kids? - but it's nice to have an even more permanent connection to Mali. We're also looking forward to having visitors! :) Any takers???
