A motorcycle taxi driver uses his feet to steer in Bamako, Mali on January 29. In Mali, they’re called “Jakartas” because they are imported cheaply. In other places, they are called boda bodas, pen pen, okada and by other names. Photo by @glennagordon #mali #bamako #transport #bodaboda #okada #penpen #jakarta #mototaxi #dangerousdrivinghabits

The normally sleepy Bamako airport in Mali was busy on February 2, the day French President Francois Hollande flew in to visit after a French military intervention reclaimed control of Northern Mali from Islamists separatists. Though the day was a celebration, most believe jihadists have just been displaced but not stopped.

Haoussa Aidara, 35, left the northern Malian town of Timbuktu in April when Islamic separatists declared power. She and her family fled to Mopti, but then left last week when the ongoing conflict in Mali intensified with a unilateral French military intervention. Her family is now renting a small two room apartment in the capital Bamako.
