I leave for Bamako later this afternoon, via Paris. I used to take this flight regularly when I worked for Handicap International. It's an Air France flight that leaves at 4:30pm, and on some days I'd still be in be bed at noon. Not good. I'll try to do better this time. I lived in Bamako in 2003-2004 and I'm curious as to how things have changed - or not.
And of course there's the music.
