    sand-shop: Sand-paintings

    by globetrott Updated Jul 11, 2014
    4 more images

    This was my favorite surprise in Dakar, as I have never seen something similar on any of my travels: Glue is pasted on a piece of wood and then step by step sands of different colour are spread over the glue, it will take a few seconds to get fixed and then the next part of the board will get some glue and more sands untill some really great sand-paintings will be the result.

    What to buy: the make sand-paintings in a large variety and you can watch them make your painting or you buy one that is hanging there in the Gallery.

    What to pay: I payed 30 Dollars for my painting, I simply could not resist ! :-)

    Marchee: On the market in the port of Dakar

    by globetrott Written Jul 11, 2014

    There had been a souvenir-market in the port of Dakar all day long while we were docked there.

    What to buy: The variety, size and Quality of the wooden works of art was a bit better in the port than in the local market in town.

    What to pay: The prices are more or less the same as on the souvenir-markets in Dakar-city, but maybe you are good in haggling and find a bargain.
    Dollars & Euros are accepted but bills only !

    Marchee des artisants: on the market in Dakar

    by globetrott Updated Jul 11, 2014

    This is one of the markets that we have visited on our bustour. Merchants there had been quite friendly without running after you and setting you under pressure once that you have shown some kind of an interest in their goods.

    What to buy: Woodcarvings, paintings, clothings, fridge-magnets and all the other Tourist stuff !
    I did not buy anything because my appartment in Vienna is filled up with too many souvenirs already, BUT otherwise I would have found a lot of interesting souvenirs there.

    What to pay: Euros and Dollars were accepted in bills, so there is no need to change some local money for such purchases.

    Auto Parts Outlet: Anything you need

    by kaloz Written Nov 17, 2008
    Auto Parts Outlet

    The Picture can not do this justice, as this building went on for quite a while with auto parts on the roof in the building spilling out of doorways in the yard. It was quite a sight.

    What to buy: If you need parts for your vehicle and you can't find it here. I guess that you are out of luck.

    Woman on Beach: African Dolls

    by kaloz Written Nov 17, 2008
    Step right up

    We were not allowed to leave the trucks, but they would stop (for pictures), and local sellers would come and hawk there wares. The people are colorfully dressed. This woman had dolls.

    What to buy: If you like the goods and are willing to pay the price you can get your souveniers delivered without getting out of the truck, but if you wait, I am sure you will find similar goods in a less stressful buying environment.

    What to pay: It is hard to negotiate while trapped in a truck with a bunch of other tourists. So if you buy here you will pay way too much.

    Kermel Market

    by SirRichard Written Oct 7, 2008
    Marche Kermel Dakar

    There are many markets in Dakar, but Kermel is one of my favourites, as it is small, it is recently refurbished and has a lot of street stalls too. Near the petro station there is a fantastic MASKS place, from all Africa.
