Racing Sunset

Sunsets and Africa.

A bit cliched, really. But the hell with originality -- I love them anyway.

On our long drive back into Bamako, the sunset was wondrous. Somehow as we barrelled down the road, it seemed to be full of intrigue, the trees playing character parts along the way. I never tire of baobabs, and spent a few moments with the window open desperately (in vain) trying to capture a bit of their spirit, in some strange avante garde sort of way.
