Village of Endé, Dogon Country, Mali © Erin Lau, 2011

As we trekked along the valley trail that followed the line of the escarpment in Dogon Country, there would be various cliff dwellings, the grandest depicted in the previous sketch of Tele. This one at Endé, though smaller and less complex, had a simple beauty as it faded into the red cliff. Some of us ventured up to explore the dwellings, others napped and enjoyed this amazing scenery. I took the time to sketch and do this watercolor, because I had a feeling we might not see this type of cliff dwelling again.
