I have finally arrived in Agadez after a tour of no less than 11 west African airports–a long boring story–and not a fun exploration–just trying to get from one point to another–the points happened to be places nobody else wanted to go–so lots of stops in between: Bissau, Dakar, Bamako, Conakry, Lome, Cotonou, Niamey, Maradi, Zinder, Diffa, and at last Agadez! Whew!
Here are a few pics of the fun part: Carnival in Guinea Bissau. Home of the largest archipelago in Africa, a tropical island paradise, many very friendly, traditional African tribes and the entry point in Africa of all the drug traffic from South America on its way to Europe. Its a governmental affair.
