It's been a busy few weeks at Postcards from Timbuktu. Postcrossing graciously wrote a blog post about our project, and the many postcard enthusiasts there quickly snapped up a few hundred postcards. That kept us busy until... actually it's still keeping us busy! The Post Office in Timbuktu even ran out of stamps a few days ago and we had to send more up from Bamako!
Ali and the boys were also featured in a short TV production by 3sat, a German channel that admirably does their fair share of culture documentaries. You can view the documentary online here.
Finally, we have had loads of thrilled customers who have ordered Boubacar's custom calligraphy pieces. We recently did a brief video of Boubacar crafting an order:

Thanks for all of your support,
Phil and Ali
