On Friday afternoons outside the Timbuktu Islamic Center you can find a few vendors selling food on the street outside the mosque serving observers of the jumu’ah. Although I was clearly just a curious onlooker the vendors were very friendly. I tried a large doughy ball with a dried fish filling which they called farinyo. A large plastic tub of thiakry was a nice dessert, a sweet mixture of yogurt and millet similar to a rice pudding. The homemade ginger beer was very good and the entire meal cost less than $5.
