Changed some things around
Fixed a couple of typos, updated some transport information (bus/air) and will write some new sections as I find the time. If you're the person who wrote the article to begin with, or just want to talk about Mali, drop me a line! -- Chris (Bamako, Mali)
Get In / By Car
It says in the article: "There should soon (within the next few months) be tarmac all the way to Bamako." That is not really helpful, unless we know WHEN this should be a few months away. Was this written one month ago? Or was it written a few years ago? Could someone either date the statement, or say when it is expected to be finished? Or even if it's finished?
Is a Carnet de Passage needed?
Could someone confirm (and include in the article under "Get In / By Car" section) whether you need a Carnet de Passage in order to bring your car into Mali? Wikipedia says that it is helpful to have a carnet, but not that it is compulsory. It would also be nice to know what you need if you don't have a carnet. I do feel that it is a rather important information to have if you're planning on entering Mali by car.
Get In / Visa and Documentation
Does anyone know, and could include in the Get In section, who needs a visa in order to get into Mail? And whether you can get it on arrival on the airport, as well as on various border crossings? And also what other documentation you need.
