Faces of Mali

Warning! Your heart is about to melt when you see these faces! Mali is a dry dry country in West Africa. I visited quite a few years ago now – seems hardly possible it was so long ago – and visited the Dogon country, Mopti, Segou, Djenne, and the capital Bamako. So here is a selection of the faces I saw in this amazing country.

So all these pics above are of children from the Dogon country from various villages. I visited and amazing village at the top of the escarpment and there was a small school there. Amazing stuff!

  1. I really admire these kids, all of them! They are so poor but still happy, smiling and having so much fun! Europe is just the opposite … technology is really killing kids these days – just phones, computers and social media…
