BamakoとSenegalのDakerを繋ぐ鉄道があるんですが整備不備で何年も走っていないようですが途中Kayes
までは営業中との事。乗りたい!でBamakoからKatiまでの半日列車紀行を企んだんですが、朝発の列車は
午後に変更してしまい無念にも断念。。。乗りたかった。。。

The train used to run from Bamako to Dakar, Senegal, but they only go to kayes from Bamako
because of the condition of the track. However I was going to ride the train to Kati from Bamako
for a half day trip on my last day in Mali, but the train got delayed and was switched it an afternoon
departure. I really wanted to ride on it...

Sotaramaというミニバスに乗ってバマコのマーケットへ♪ここは人と物でごったがいしていて、
熱気ムンムン歩いてるだけでくたくたです。。

I got on a mini bus (Sotarama) and crossed the town and went to the market♪
the place is huge, tons of people, tons of stuff, I was so overwhelmed.

Kamandjanアーチを観にBamakoから30分位行ったSibyに行ってきました。この岩はかなり
見応えがあります。言い伝えによるとSibyの王が剣を使ってKamandjanに穴をあけたとか。
途中薬草を摘んでいた地元の子供達に出会い、そのまま一緒にプラプラ探索♪

We went to see the arch Kamandjan in Siby about 30mins away from the center of Bamako.
According to legend the arch of kamandjan was transpierced by the king of Siby with his sabre.
It is a really cool site to look at. The local kids who were picking some medicine leaves joined
us and we walked around together. It was a nice half day trip♪

ちびっ子ギャングがみんな持っていたPtelnという手造り玩具。自転車の部品かと思われるメタル
ピース、タイヤのチューブ、気の棒そして釘一本を使って造ったファイヤークラッカー。マッチの
火薬を詰めてそれを棒にゴムでつながれた釘で塞いで、地面に勢い良く叩き付けると、バンッ!って。
それだけなんですが面白くてみんなでバンバンやってたらジェネバに怒鳴られました。かーちゃんを
イライラさせるシットですね。

Pteln is a firecracker toy boys make out of a bicycle metal piece (I'm assuming), tire tube, wooden
stick and a nail. You stuff the match powder, set the nail, smash it to the ground, then Bang!!
I had some fun time with them doing it. Djeneba yelled at us then saw me doing it and laughed at me.
I guess that is one of those things that can drive a mother crazy.

バマコへ向かっている途中、道路脇でヤギの首を落としてる人を目撃、アダマにヤギ捌けるか聞いたら
勿論出来るとの答えを頂いたので、急遽ヤギ一頭ゲット、車に積んでいざアダマの家へ♪ 一頭$40位で
安いと感じるかもしれませんが現地の人達には結構な買い物。5日間泊めさせてもらうんでしたが手ぶらで
お邪魔するのもちょっとと思っていた時だったのでヤギはナイスアイデア♪
まずは首を切って楽にさせたら吊るして皮剥いで部分ごとに切ったりと。。見慣れてないと結構えぐいかも
しれませんが、残す事無く頭からしっぽまでばっちり使います。お盆の上に小分けした物はご近所さん達に
お裾分け♪ ここの人達はご近所さん達とすごく共存ないい感じのコミュニティー、なんか昭和な感じで
懐かしく思えたりと気分良好♪ アダマの奥さんジェネバが毎日おいしくヤギ料理してくれて満喫満杯♪

On our way back to Bamako, I saw a guy chopping the head off of a goat by the side of the road.
I asked Adama if he knew how to do that. He said, “of course!” I said, “good, let’s go get a goat
and bring it to your family.”
We picked up a goat from a guy selling them on the side of the road. It cost about $40, which
doesn’t sound like a lot to us, but it is a pretty big purchase for the locals. It all worked out well.
I didn’t want to show up empty handed and I got to experience preparing a live goat and tasty
goat dishes.
First, they cut the goat’s throat, killing it instantly. Then they peeled the skin and chopped the
goat into parts. I know it looks pretty intense for us that are only used to seeing nicely packaged
meat. They don’t waste anything.
They use the goat from head to tail. Once the meat was nicely placed on a big plate, Adama sent
his kids to their neighbors to share the meat. They’re a very close-knit community.
I have to give a big shout out to Adama’s wife, Djeneba, for all the amazing meals!!! They were
too delicious!!!

yirimadioでの5日間、毎朝ジェネバが朝市に連れて行ってくれました。家から歩いて5~10分位の
地元市場ですが皆さんおしゃれして登場♪朝市はほとんど女性で賑わいます。ジェネバはまずご近所さん
達とブースを構え揚げパンやサンドウィッチなどを売るので、その間横でつまみ食いしたりしながら待機。
それが終わると夕飯の買い物に行くんで付いて行ったり、3日目位にはみんな僕の事見慣れたみたいで
良い感じにいろんな人とチャットしたりと楽しかったです♪

I accompanied Adama's wife Djeneba every morning to the market. I learned that most of the women
in Yirimadio have a morning routine of going there. It's a local market but they dress up nicely.
She has a little booth with her neighbors selling fried dough and sandwiches. I just sat there and
chilled with them til she finished, and thereafter she’d grocery shop for dinner. I followed her around
like a kid at the market.
By the 3rd day, people got used to seeing me there and I felt a little more comfortable. I was able to
chat with more people. It was so much fun♪ Thanks Djeneba!!

BamakoのYirimadioという地区にあるアダマの家に最後の5日間泊めさせてもらいました。アダマ、
奥さんのジェネバ、アダマの子供達そしてご近所さん達みんなのおかげで現地の一般家庭生活を体験
させてもらい、すごく楽しい時間を過ごせました♪ またYirimadioへみんなに会いに行きたいです♪

I stayed at Adama's family in the area called Yirimadio in Bamako for the rest of my stay in Mali.
Gratefully I got a chance to experience the local life. This experience really made my trip. It would
not have happened without Adama, his wife, his kids and neighbors' great hospitality and friendship.
I cannot wait to go back to Yirimadio and spend some time with them in the future.

マリに行く前、現地では何を食べるのか凄く気になっていたんですが、かなり満喫してきました♪
炭水化物な物ばっか食べてたのもあるんですが予想に反し結構太って帰ってきました。。
主食は米、クスクス、トウモロコシにミレット(雑穀)でオニオンソース(Jabaji)やピーナッツバターソース
(tigedegenaw)を掛けて食べます。これほとんど毎日でした。ヤギ、牛、チキンや魚があればソースに
入れたりします。道路脇やマーケットにはよく肉屋をみかけます、ドラム缶の上でヤギ肉のグリル♪
ホルモン系もありかなりおいしく、みかける度に食べてました。
朝食は揚げパンみたいなもの(Farini)、ミレットのパンケーキにエッグサンドをリプトン紅茶かネスカフェ
を飲みつつ食べてました。ちなみに手で食べる時は右手を使いましょう, 左手はだめですよ。
NYでもおいしい西アフリカ料理探しにいかないと♪ 
写真は旅の間食べたものなんでチェケラッちょ。

Before I went to Mali, I was really curious about what I was going to eat there. The result – I really
enjoyed the food and gained so much weight from all the carbs...
Rice, couscous, corn and millet are the grains used in most Malian meals. Rice is served with a sauce,
usually onion sauce (Jabaji) or peanut butter sauce with vegetables and spices (tigedegenaw). Goat,
beef, lamb, chicken and fish are added to the sauce or eaten separately when available.
I really loved the grilled goat meat sold at the market and on the side of the road. It was so good!
For breakfast I had fried dough (Farini), millet pancake or egg sandwich with Lipton tea or Nescafe.
Nescafe has permeated throughout Mali. By the way when you eat with your hand, use your right hand.
I want to find some good West African food spots in NYC!
The photos are the food I had during my trip.

パンクを修理してGaouaからBanforaという町へ日が暮れるちょっと前に到着。今まで観てきた
枯れ枯れな土地とはうって変わってこの辺りは緑が豊富で広大な砂糖キビ畑も広がっていました。
観光名所も幾つかあるようでその中のKarfiguela滝や変わった岩石群Fabédougouドームをさくっと
チェック。この町で一番楽しかったのは宿の人に借りたチャリでぷらぷらパトロール♪めちゃ満喫♪ 
そういえば広島市の消防車が走ってました!
ブルキナ ファソとは早くもお別れと思ったら今度はエンジン系トラブルでピットイン。。。で修理完了
まで市場をプラプラ。旅の終盤でようやくクーラーが効いてきて涼しい♪ 再び国境を越えてMaliへ、
Sikasso経由で首都Bamakoへ戻ります。

After the tire was replaced, we left Gaoua and arrived to Banfora a little before sunset. There are
many trees and bodies of water around Banfora. In rainy season, water accumulates in normally
forest areas. It's also known for huge sugar cane plantations. I went to see Karfiguela waterfall and
Fabédougou Domes. However, what I enjoyed most in this town was riding a bicycle around. Luckily
the guy from the hotel let me borrow his while he was working. It totally made my day!! Oh, I saw
a Japanese fire track on duty! So random.
We had some engine trouble with the car and brought it into a factory. I took a walk to the market
while they were fixing it. My trip was almost over and we finally had cold air coming out from the AC.
We got on the road heading back to Mali from Burkina Faso. The next stop is Sikasso.
