What’s Mali like?

What do my friends say when I tell them I’m going to Mali for the summer?

“By July you won’t have dysentery anymore.” — Kelly

“You know Mali’s, like, a really, really, poor country, right?” — Adam

“Hmm, you’re American?  Why didn’t you go to an African country where they speak English?” — French expat I meet on day one

“Bon voyage. Don’t get dead. Don’t drink the water. Eat lots of weird shit. And bring back something cool!” — Brandon
