By Canoe to Timbuktu –
Presenter Sheila Petersen shares the tale of how a chance remark to a friend about the desire to visit Timbuktu and see the Muslim manuscripts collected and preserved there, crystallized into organising a 3-week visit to Mali in January 2007. Along the way, they learned much about this beautiful, but impoverished country, as well as visiting the World Heritage Sites of Djenne, the Dogon escarpment, and finally a 3-day canoe trip along the Niger River to Timbuktu.
