Lunch in Bamako

Lunch cooking at a local street restaurant .. brochettes ( left ) awaiting their turn on the grill ( right ) and potato chips frying in the charcoal-heated oil ( centre ).

Proud smiles as another meal is loaded into a tapolapa bread roll .. now with Plantains
( 'enormous bananas' - the fruit of the Musa Paradisiaca ) frying in the centre.
