{ Anisokoma, mon amie }

In Bamanakan, or Bambara, "Anisokoma" means good morning!
Greetings are very important in Malian culture...but I'll speak more on that later.
Each morning, the sun says hello as it peaks above the horizon. 
I tip toe out of my room at about 6:45, with my yoga mat in hand, just in time to catch the morning sunrise, 
I put a pot of water on the gas stove, 
and sip some tea as I do some yoga and even run a few laps around the roof...
What a better way to start the day than with a greeting from Mr. Sun? 
I love it.
And if you know me, you know I looooove anything to do with my sun. 
I love Mali!
