Let's have a chat about mali....I need to make a decision about going 
soon and other do as well.
Can we find a good time for a chat with everybody (from IMC africa) on 
the issue?
what about times, we should be all in more or less the same time zone 
(guessing people are mainly from africa and europe)
someone from further a field?
is thursday GMT 22.00h a good time?

Let us know
