- Return to Mali via Casablanca.
We land at 3:00am in Mali after a 16 hr layover in Casablanca, Morocco. While in Casablanca, we take a quick, although exciting, tour through a local market and a mosque (known to be the largest Mosque in Africa) located on the water. After landing in Mali and getting adjusted to the time difference and long flight, we arrive at the office in Bamako, Mali, only to find that the Malian government has cut the electricity to the office as a result of a bridge under construction nearby. To remedy this rather inconvenient situation, Afriq Power has installed 8 solar panels and now the office is run on entirely on solar power! Very cool; although it is very hot.
