My flight back to Bamako also have some story to tell.  I checked-in  2 hours before the departure time and scanned my hand luggage through the scan machine as usual.  After a while an announcement was made requesting the passengers to board the plane.  Eh I said to myself, it quite early 1 hour 10 minutes before departure time.  Do I to fly early?  Oh no.  We were keeps waiting inside the plane for about 30 minutes then first announcement was made informing that the captain waiting for the last minute check-in passengers.  Then after another 10 minutes, second announcement was made by the chief steward announce that we have to wait little bit longer as one of the passengers forgot to bring his/her “document”.  And finally that passenger arrived and boarded so the plane taxing to runaway on the scheduled departure time.

Upon arrival at Bamako Senou Airport, the Immigration Officer asked me for my telephone number and scribble onto the embarkation card. Why?.  Then as usual I passed through normal custom inspection where no manual inspection done at all except scanning of my hand luggage.  Ohh… I comeback to Bamako again and greeted by our office’s chauffeur, Idrissa, “Innula Patron, Inneche!“.

    Alaikumsalam Ayoh Wi.

    Mali dalam pelancongan memang hebat. Timbuktu termasuk dalam 21 finalis 7 New Wonder of the World. Sangat bersejarah. Sejarahnya lebih tua dari negara kita. Zaman gemilangnya bersama Islam. Ada Universiti yang lebih tua dari Universiti Al Azhar. Sejarahnya terpelihara keasliannya dengan bantuan UNESCO dan NGOs. Tempat lain yang hebat terkenal sejarahnya ialah Mopti, Bandiagara, Djenne dan Segou. Grup pelancong banyak datang ke tempat ini. Dalam tahun 2005 ada 2 orang Malaysia singgah berjumpa dan ke Timbuktu dengan 4WD tour the world. Bulan lepas ada seorang Singaporean juga ke Timbuktu. Saya ada baca dalam blog “Ancient Mariner”, Dato Ghani pun ada tour tak lama lagi. Katanya destinasinya termasuk Afrika. Tak pasti jika dia akan kesini. Boleh berjumpa beri sedikit bantuan yang perlu kalau DG ke sini nanti. Nanti suatu masa akan dicoretkan tentang tempat -tempat yang menarik ini. Terima kasih

    Assalamualaikum Maznillah,
    Mali mempunyai keindahan nya yang tersendiri. Cuba lihat Mali dari segi perspektif pelancongan. Ada kemungkinan pelancongan ke Malai boleh dibangunkan memandangkan tidak ramai travel agen di Malaysia menjual pakej-pakej ke Negara-negara Afrika selain dari Egypt.
