Update – Thursday 6th December 2012:

Mali Ville – ‘we’re on top of the world, ma!’ –Fouta Djallon Highlands, Guinea Conakry, West Africa

We arrived in Mali Ville covered in a thick layer of red dust, from the road – it was in our hair, up our noses, in our ears and all over our clothes. As seems to be par for the course, the car windows would not close, without the use of an itinerant ‘manivelle’ – the window winder. Before we set out from Horé Dimma, the driver had made a cursory attempt to find it – scrambling around on the already cluttered floor of his vehicle – before eventually shrugging and giving up on finding it.

First impressions of Mali Ville: ‘What a dump!’
