So I’m in Kayes in western Mali waiting for a boat that will get me to Senegal. My plan was to travel by train all the way to Dakar, there are new trains imported from India but Mali and Senegal are still discussing the track. According to the police who work at the train station in Bamako it’s because the Malian track is in a very bad condition. But it could be worse, we arrived in Kayes (halfway to Dakar) only one hour late. Better than SJ I would say:) But the train stops here and travellers need to go the rest of the way either by bus or boat. The photos are from the train station in Bamako, the second one is inside a train given by Canada in the 1980s, to the left you can see a part of the new train imported from India.
