They like monuments

Bamako is very dirty, smelly and hectic and I loved it, it's the kind of place I've been cravingfor a while, supermarkets (of a sort) decent restaurants and things to see and do. I also found a decent hostel with a pleasant 4 bed dorm complete with sittingarea although this was permanently occupied by Japanese who as far as I know never left the hostel in the whole time I was there. It still says something about West African food that I ate most of my meals in either a chinese restaurant or French patiserie.

Bamako's main bus station was not so pleasant, it's a fly infested cess pit where I had the misfortune to spend 3 hours waiting for a bus out.
