    Timbuktu, an african legend, your pages are provoking me, I guess that I should go there as soon as possible. Your photographs seems candid and accurate in rich details at the same time. Congratulations m'moiselle!

    I love your photos, especially of local life and people. I would really like to visit some day but sadly now is probably not a good time ...

      Thank you...
      Of what I hear, the situation locally is better than what is portrayed in media... Hope you get the chance one day

    Nice images of a town I was disappointed to miss. I loved Mali, and hope it's doing better now...

    Timbuktu has traditionally been the epitome of a remote place that no one ever visited. Great that you went there and mingled with the local people, and also went out into the desert.

    Unfortunately VT member JLBG is not very active any more, but you might be interesting in reading about his desert treks, for instance his page on the Tassili N'Ajjer National Park in Algeria:

    Did such a camel ride too :-) Shame that one cannot visit Timbuktu anymore these days.
