Colourful local life
Favorite thing: One of the things I love most about West Africa, is the colours. The people dress in brightly coloured cloth, with a vivacious flair and everything is bright and cheerful.
Fondest memory: My local camera club has a photographic competition every your called the Bucket Competition. The only criteria to enter is that the shot must include a picture of one or more buckets. In 1996, I entered this photograph!
Some good walks
Favorite thing: The Gambia has a lot of natural beauty and there are beautiful birds and butterflies and flowers galore. A good idea is to take hike in the rainforest Abouko nature reserve to see rare red Colobus monkeys. Take lots of DEET!
- Hiking and Walking
Getting intimate with a crocodile
Favorite thing: There is one particularly docile old croc at the Katchikally Crocodile Pool in Bakau, called Charlie, and you are encourages to get close and actually touch him!
Fondest memory: Hey! I stroked a crocodile!!!!!!!
