Three years later I still coo over sleeping babies strapped to women's backs. I still marvel at moon rises and starry nights in village. Bambara continues to challenge and delight me. Baby donkeys continue to be precious. I still love sunsets and the sound of rain on tin roofs. Happy 3 years in Mali* – I love you a little more for different reasons each day.
PS As with any relationship though, there are times I don't like you but I'll always love you :)
