Before coming here, I didn’t know much about Guinea. I knew the WHO had declared it Ebola free only a few months prior to my visit, and I knew it rains a lot. (It does!) That’s about it.

I meet friendly Hassan and his brother who have been guiding visitors on these signature hikes in the surrounding mountains and canyons for over a decade.

They laugh at my question about the rain
“We hike anyway!”
