New in Bamako, in need of fun spare time intro


Hi everyone,

I just arrived in Bamako, and already have an immense desire to get out of the office building and into town.
I have no experience with InterNations, and very little experience living in Africa ( besides six months in small village in eastern DRC with absolutely nothing to do)

What is the best way to get to know the city? to move around, and do things during evenings and weekends. I am thinking;
Food and drinks, where to go out?
Live music? I love live music, and I love this Tuareg desert blues,
Sports? Nice yoga schools, gyms, good places to go for a run, preferably in Badalabougou(?)
markets, museums, achitecture... Any tips tricks and recommendations are much appreciated.

looking forward to hear from you,
