Favorite thing: There's a LOT of waiting, waiting and more waiting in this part of the world...specially when dealing with any type of public transport. I have quite a few of these pictures taken at various bus stops through out Dakar.
Haunting part of our history
Favorite thing: Goree Island. This is close to being a must visit. To see the Slave House and Door of No Return. Seeing the rest of the Island is good also.
Fondest memory: My fondest memeory of Senegal is the people and their characteristics. They "make" themselves your freind.Related to:

Senegal's national dish
Favorite thing: I didn't had the chance myself to visit Senegal in Africa, so I visited Senegal in my favorite city Antwerp. I was invited to share the meal with my new Senegalese friends.
It was delicious! and that is an understatement.
I have to ask for the exact name but here is the picture!
Take a walk to the markets in...
Favorite thing: Take a walk to the markets in Dakar. Don't be afraid of getting deep into the dark sites of it. I didn't find any danger there, but very friendly people selling condiments and plants I've never seen before.
Meet the villagers!
Favorite thing: If there is one thing that you do whilst you are in Senegal, it is getting out of the city and into the country to meet the villagers, they are really amazing people......
Fondest memory: I really miss the Senegalese music, it is very unique and is very infectious. (See my Senegal Travelogue for more photos of the villages)
Parc Niokolo a must!
Favorite thing: You absolutely must go to Parc National De Niokolo - Koba (a mouthful I know) There are some great chances to see hippo, crocodile, and lots of antelope, and if you are very very lucky, maybe lion too.... It is definately the Serengeti of west Africa.
Fondest memory: Visiting a very rural fishing community, not far from the Gambian border, and being invited to help the women crush the millet - a lot lot harder than it looks! and then being taken on a traditional cooking lesson.
For a fantastic holiday, go to Senegal
Favorite thing: I could not especially name one fondest memory, because the whole vacation was fantastic!

Favorite thing: Witness a sunset from one of the many bridges in St-Louis.
