Bamako is one of the oldest looking places I have been to. I was fortunate to live in this city for four months. I found the city to be lively and vibrant. People are kind and generous. Bamako has an amazing night life with great bars, art exhibitions and live music by some of the notable artists on Earth. More than anything, Bamako is just a chilled out place: no drama, no stress, no second-guessing anyone because people here are 100 percent legit.
Malian road trips…
This is a place called Djocoroni Para. It’s where I left my heart. This is where I learned to speak French, the traditional dances that helped me lose massive amounts of weight, where I learned to cook West African dishes and where I pretty much had one of the best times of my life.
Signs are still hand painted in West Africa.
Down town Bamako is always packed to the rafters with people.
Meal time is never a crisis in Bamako. There are people selling freshly-prepared meals everywhere.
