a bunch of these photos, including this, were taken chilling just outside the coulibaly's house. the white/pink building on the left with the ambulance in front of it is Asacado, the local health clinic for the neighborhood. i didn't check it out this time, but last time when i went in and found one patient room with 3 beds and 1 IV stand, one birthing room with metal table, one stirrup, one set surgical pans, one pair rubber kitchen gloves. and in talking to some nurses i met at the airport on my way out of bamako these are good conditions for mali. they had just spent 2 weeks in a village outside bamako as an ob/gyn surgical team helping with births, doing a c section and putting women back together after their many births coupled with hard labor right after.
