The big goals for the day were to figure out the river boat schedule (since three guide books give three different schedules), go by the Peace Corps stage house for information, and a rematch on the pool table. Found the river boat office without to much trouble. The next boat is supposed to leave Koulikoro (near Bamako) tomorrow, stopping in Ségou (where we want to catch it) on Friday morning. Had a little difficulty finding the stage house again, but finally did. Got information on the Peace Corps house in Ségou (where we're hoping to stay). The pool table wasn't quite as friendly as the other night (I won one game, lost three - two scratching on the eight ball). For diner we tried to go to a Malian restaurant but it didn't open until later and then Andrea and I decided that it was silly to pay real money for Malian food when we could eat so well on the street for so little. So instead we went to a cafe and had European food (pizza!). After diner we went by the internet cafe for our last chance at email for a while. On the way back to the hotel on my last bâché ride in Bamako we managed to get on the wrong one (the attendant told us it was the right one, but obviously he had no idea what we were asking for). It was kind of irritating since I've done the route at least a dozen times with no problems and to blow it on the last night and with a witness. Took an extra hour or so to get back to the correct route and then to the hotel.
