the best :

1 -  camping under the stars in small villages along the niger under mosquito net
2- turbans-in northern mali the sahara is hot and sand everywhere= turbans rule !
3-  nescafe and eggs- i became best friends with the live chickens and cattler that would be killed and eaten for dinner- i talked to them daily to the point that i will very likely never eat meat again
4- having 10 kids hold my hand at once with huge smiles
5- kids sneaking out of the village to find brian after his live guitar performance with flashlights in the middle of the night
6- perspective regained
7- OBAMA finally travelling and being from america gives us street cred
8- bottled water
9- the way people just get it done and dont complain
10- amadou and our wonderful guides

worst:
1- night 2 camping when i thought i was being attacked by animals in the middle of the night in our tent aliong the niger river
2- camping night 4 with dung beetles the size of my palm in the sand
3- gnats flies mosquitoes
4- women doing backbreaking work with babies on their back all day while men sit around and hang discussing village 'issues'
5- donkeys get no respect
6- indiana jones sandstorm on night 3 of camping--or--generally being whipped by sand with my contacts in
7- 115 degree weather and you cant swim
8- being stopped by military plice and having to bribe them
9- having to go the the police station in sevare
