My trip to Mali didn't start too well. What should have been a 4/5 hour flight turned into a 9 hour extravaganza.
I noticed that there was a couple of people walking around the plance with orange arm bands that say police on them. One of them address the airplane, but spoke too quickly and I lost him early, so I had no idea about what was to come.
The flight was about 15 minutes late when a police van pulled up beside the plane and 2 people carried a man in a straight jacket kicking and screaming into the plane.
I quickly put 2+1 together and reasoned that it must be a deportee, and indeed I wasn't wrong. They had cleared 3 rows at the back of the plane and they needed every inch of space to try and contain this guy.
The moment he came on board he wouldn't stop screaming "France chez moi, France chez moi"("France is my home, France is my home"). You can't imagine how disturbing this was, and it only took a few minutes before people started to protest.

So I went to the launch party for Sibo Bangoura's new cd in Newtown in Sydney the other day.
There really is quite a lot of djembe action going on here in Sydney and it was a great show.
I'm dying to play djembe again. It been months now. Kinda strange since there's souch djembe action going on here in Sydney. I should probably go and seek out sone lessons from some of the guineans while I'm here.
