I was randomly doing web searches today on google, and came across your website. I grew up in Kayes, Mali, and Dakar, Senegal, and have been feeling particularily homesick recently, since I'm now suck in the states for the time being. I really just wanted to thank you for the oppertunity to see home through someone else's eyes. Although reading your accounts make me more homesick (for despite Kayes dusty heat, it is a place incredibly close to my heart). Thank you!
Subject: Great to hear from you!

It's a pleasure! Although my stopover in Kayes might have been unintentional, it proved to be an excellent idea, as otherwise I'd have spent most of the train journey to Bamako sleeping. I remember Kayes quite fondly, and it's great to hear from someone who's actually from there.
