"Malian people are very..." Mali Local Custom Tip by lalakante

Mali Local Customs: 65 reviews and 76 photos


Malian people are very animated, expressive and powerful. Their sense of humor is often misunderstood. My boyfriend's family members like to pretend they're mad at me for some silly thing to make fun of me when I believe they're actually mad! I've also had females I just met tell me they could beat me up in a fight. :D They're some funny folk! You just kinda gotta get used to the humor, because it can catch you off guard at first. ;)
