Saturday, March 21, 2015
Today we started our day by taking a long journey to Timbaktu. As we left Bangalore we climbed in elevation and the trees thinned out.  We were entering a desert area. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised to find that we were going to be staying in a guest house that overlooks the forest. The house is made of rock and thatched roofs. A common area and kitchen are at the center of the house and the sleeping areas are in circular rooms on the ends. We saw monkeys, a scorpion, and an ox. We were also warmly welcomed by the founders of Timbaktu. Today was a rest day for us, but we are looking forward to starting our community project work tomorrow.
