Cliff Dwelling In Mali

 If you watched the video below – of a French woman free soloing the Bandiagara cliffs in Mali – you might be interested to learn more about the way the Dogon villagers live. In the video, it shows abandoned “pygmy” houses and skeletons. Apparently that’s because they moved to Burkina Faso according to this article. More here.

Here’s a Dogon dama dance. (Man, if I had those stilts, I’d be able to reach a lot higher on those cliff routes.)
