The hiking was fantastic! The hike up the escarpment was the most stunningly beautiful part of what has been a very beautiful (though somewhat short) trek. It was supposed to take at least an hour and a half, but we were up and in Sanga in less than 30 minutes (before 9 am)- even with lots of photo stops. We hung out in the taxi park (there were none), then met up with the Australian couple again at a restaurant. We spent the morning hanging out in the restaurant, hiking along the top of the escarpment, and trying to figure out how to get back to Sevoré. At about 1pm the Australian's taxi arrived and we were offered a ride in it back to Bandiagara. However the taxi driver was not happy with that and a huge argument ensued. He wanted us to pay him 12,500 CFA for the ride (the normal bush taxi price is 1,200 per person) even though the Australians had already paid him. We ended up paying 6,000 CFA for the ride since the option was to wait until tomorrow evening when there should be plenty of rides (market day). A very bumpy and painful (for me - the car had a low roof) hour later had us in Bandiagara. We bought tickets for the Bâché to Sevoré then had a late lunch (it was now 2pm) at our Tigadigana restaurant and waited until 5:30 for the bâché to fill up. We made it about fifteen minutes out of town before the truck broke down. The driver hitched back to town for a mechanic and a mere hour later we were on our way again. We arrived in Sevoré at about 8:30 for a total of almost 12 hours - for a ride that should have been about two and a half hours.
