Big goal for today was to get the visa for Burkina Faso. Got to the embassy, dropped off the passports (and 13,000 CFA). The next two hours was spent drinking coffee, findingg some street food (surprise rice and sauce), and generally exploring the travel books. An hour at the Internet cafe (of course) then it was back to pick up the brand new Burkina visa. Went to the Mali Museum which was pretty well done though small. Then hiked up to the plateau (Point "G") above the city. The city is amazingly green from above, and the fog winding through the tree tops, and the Niger River snaking through the backgound made a worthwhie view. As it was getting dark and we were both getting hungry the walk back was very long. Sttoped at the first street stand we found and had some great french friy type things - they were made out of sweet potatoes, and served with a chilie sauce, yum! Diner was more street food, but then I ruined the effect by going for ice cream again - this time it was actually really good.
