It was a slow, lazy Sunday afternoon and I had been putting off going to the festival. I called up my
friend, we got slightly dolled up and went to eat. As the sun was setting in Bamako, we hopped in a
Cab and headed to Badalabougou where the “Palais de la Culture Amadou Hampaté Ba” is located.

It wasn’t too crowded because we went on the last day of the festival (6-10 April), so we got to peruse
at our leisure, there were opportunities to come back for more food, there were no queues and there
was food everywhere. It was also dim so we could pig out with no judgement from other people
there.

The first vendor to serve us made brochette de viande (beef kebabs), fried fish, battered fried
chicken and salted crepes (with minced meat); we got the brochettes and the salted crepes. We then
proceeded to taste a variety of food and drinks. All in all it was a good evening, it would maybe have
been better if we had come when it was more crowded because there was live music then, but it was
still a worthy experience and I can’t wait for the next one.
