Photographer's Note

This Mosque is located along the Niger river, between Mopti and Niafunkč (the place is called Kafusaba, 14deg 56' 50" N, 4deg 10' 18" W). We arrived there at dusk on board of a pinasse, and camped overnight on the opposite bank of the river (see also the sunset picture). The next morning we crossed the river and walked to the village up to this Mosque. I wrote down the name of village on my notebook, or so I happen to remember, but unfortunately I'm unable to find or recall it...
Watching the village at sunset from our encampment was an amazing experience: no electricity, only fires blinking in the distance through smoke. We were really moved...
