So, I arrived well, albeit with a one-hour delay. Within five minutes of leaving the airport I saw a couple of camels. Niger is a beautiful country, but with the Sahara desert so close by it's bloody hot: between 31 and 35°C. And this is called the cold season here! So far things went great. I had an interesting weekend visiting the city of Niamey, its Petit Marché, the national museum (twice!) and two leather factories, one of which worked in a very traditional (and smelly) way. Photo's are following, but not during my visit. Internet is dead slow here.
Must go now, more info later.
