Paradise of the devil

The next day our plans took us to Djenne. Not far off, we arrived in the early afternoon, after crossing the Ban river with a small ferry. The arabs namned the city Djenne, which is variation of adjenne, meaning paradise. They meant it ironically, since it was the home of animist or hethens in their view. So it was the paradise of the devil …

The next morning at 6 a.m., I was on my way to Djenne. The town of Djenne (derived from Janna in arabic which means paradise) was as significant as Timbuktu for trade during its time.
