Cattle crossing at Diafarabe by Spoonymonki on 13 May 2003 5:46pm
I want to catch this Decembers Cattle crossing at Diafarabe in Mali but am having trouble finding out when it is likely to be.
I know it is climate based and therefore has no set date, however I reckon Palins researchers must have had knowledge of previous dates (maybe the past 10 years?) in order to make an educated guess for the festival 'Sahara' covered.
However I cannot for the life of me find any further information. I scanned the www, mailed tourist organisation, contacted Lonelyplanet and pretty much everything else I can think of without luck!

Anybody have any other ideas or info?

Cheers in advance

Spoon - are you referring to the Cure Salee (Salt Cure Festival) that was featured in Sahara? Perhaps you can find some more information if you try looking up Cure Salee or Ingal (where it was held.)

Hope this helps!
