Let’s go to… MALI!

Start here with some info about the history and geography of Mali.
Have you heard people say “That’s as far away as Timbuktu!“? WELL, the Striking Earthen City of Timbuktu is perched on the edge of the Sahara, in Mali! You can find out more via the National Geographic here.
The Great Mosque of Djenne is the biggest man-made clay structure in the WORLD! Find out more about Djenne and check out some pictures here.
Did you know that Mali is often referred to as “the birthplace of the blues”? You can listen to some of their traditional music here.
Did you know the official language of Mali is French (though more people speak Bambara!)? Why not try learning a few French words with Duolingo here?
Finally, you can read all about Malian cuisine here. It sounds delicious!
