Default To tyro: bowls

Thank you John for your, as always, carefully written comments.

I really can't see what those ladies were selling from the white enamelled bowls. Something white. Rice? Flour? I can't think of anything else.

As for the lady on the motorcycle, she may have been Christian. Or she may have been Muslim. Burkina Faso (Upper Volta in those days) struck me as a very relaxed and tolerant country where the religions seemed to live peacefully together. I saw very few Muslim women (if any at all) dressed like we are used to seeing them in the Middle East. And I am quite certain that among the men enjoying a cold beer on a hot day there were also Muslims. It was not at all a very strict Islamic culture.

Yesterday I discovered that you had added "The sound of West Africa" to your favourites. That was a nice surprise, and as usual I am honoured. Thank you very much.

Kind regards,
