Mali: Kids in Djenne

While the Great Mosque of Djenne was stunning and the world’s largest mudbrick town of Djenne was equally incredible – what really blew me away were the Djenne kids. Dozens of happy and smiling kids, barefoot and covered in sandy dust, running around everywhere and screaming “photo photo” and posing for pics. Tourists are a rarity these days in Djenne, and when you come here, you become an absolute and total center of attention. So many new friends!
