We are always grateful for offers of British Motorcycles, spares and related artefacts. That lane is mostly occupied by mini buses stopping frequently.
In some streets the vendors became so thick cars can no longer move through and they have been turned unofficially into pedestrian ways. Only the main thoroughfares are asphalt, crossroads are rocky mud puddles after the rain. No city looks appealing in the rain, this one even less so.

We had to change money and do internet. Moving the motorcycle became an endless chore in the one way streets as the ancient mini bus fumes surrounded us. I wondered what the life expectancy of a local, spending all day selling goods, would be in these fumes. It became quicker to park and walk and we ended up doing internet at the Grand Hotel in quiet air conditioned comfort, where an evening glass of red wine in the bar seemed appropriate, away from the outside chaos.
The road heads north and is asphalt to Didjeni. Other travellers coming from Mali previously advised us that the road was then dirt to Diema, but they didn't know the condition of the road from there to Kayes. Apparently from Kayes all the way to Dakar in Senegal it is mostly new asphalt.

Truckies are always a good source of road information. We travelled to Segou, km east, a town also on the Niger River now, like the Nile, flowing incongruously through an almost desert. The large river rising in Guinea and ending in Nigeria, the lifeline of the region in-between.

The shape of the planks doesn't matter as others are simply cut to fit the gaps. Tarred and nailed together you wonder how they float, some being 30 metres in length with joints everywhere and hardly any structural beams. An easy form of transport in a desert country moving timber, sand, grains, animals and people. Many even larger ones poled along or with old truck engines chugging. The pointed ends move easily in the water though hard to turn. Into Mopti, km, a major river transport hub and junction of the rivers to Bamako, Tombouctou and Djenne. Hundreds of these boats of different sizes, along with the tourist version, continually shuffle their position loading and unloading.

Brightly dressed people clamber everywhere buying, selling or travelling. A people watchers haven of activity. People are bringing their sheep here to be onsold to traders for the Bamako markets. These nomads move only by water carrying animals, chickens, fish, houses, nets and themselves in their boats. We took a small pinasse and visited four small villages extending along the confluence of the two rivers and marvelled at their simple yet efficient way of life.
As such, problems that tourism brings with it are here. Children asking for money or pens. Touts wishing to act as guides or take you to souvenir sellers.
