Journal Entry:
Lazy morning then took care of business (laundry, packing, figuring out supplies, etc.). Early afternoon walked into town the main goal for the day being to figure out how and when we're getting to Niamey (Niger). Tried two bus companies listed in the guide books - neither of them are in business any longer. Had a late lunch at the Grande Marché, and then did some more wandering / shopping (only bought a few small things). Met up with Andrea and learned that she had more success - we now know of a min-bus leaving for Niamey Monday morning at 6am! Now as long as we can get across the border we're in business.

Tried to check email, but the business center at the hotel is closed for the weekend - tomorrow I'll try elsewhere (some of the tele-boutiques have internet access). Had diner at my regular place (i.e. I splurged again), including another ice cream sundae construction.
