Dogon Country - Tereli

We camped on top of the Dogon Plateau outside the village of Daga. In the morning we hiked down to the village of Tereli where the Dogon perform a mask dance for tourists. While we had the full attention of all the village children, they weren't anywhere as annoying as the ones in Songho.
