Not only did Oumar take us on a wonderful tour of Bandia and the Pink Lake, but he also took us to the airport to try to recover our lost bag and helped us locate a power converter (at our request). He's the best! And Mr. Diop's reputation as a world famous driver was on full display. Many thanks to them both!
