Tommi and Kaisu-Leena were living in Niger for a year in 2003-2004. In these pages they
told whether it was possible to survive without snow; who got buried into the dunes;
how to get malaria and where to run to, when you're caught in a pit with
thousand spiders. Stories straight south of Sahara appeared in these pages
at random intervals. Unfortunately for you, who are reading this in English,
most of the letters will only be in Finnish. Few English translations are available, translated by Tommi's brother Kimmo.
You can also enjoy the pictures section, because one picture's worth thousand words.
