You surely have to go and check thses crops out. Its amazing how you can get these diversity of vegetation. Gambia is an 100% tropical country so expect everything that water can provide.
These region here is not very used to tourism so people will look odd at you, but will try to talk.
If you decide to get to know Kuntaur a bit bettr, the central market is a must and you'll need to rest there and meet the folks of course. People here sell everything. In the morning is when all the action takes place but still in the afternoon, some people sell clothes ad necessary goods.
I bought some mangoes and a guy on a store gave me water to wash them.
Palm trees and lakes
Here's one of the typical view and landscape of this side of the river: the north bank is very rich in water. You can notice the diversity of vegetation and lots of palm trees giving a tropical look to the whole picture. Gambia is very good to get Malaria due to the large amount of mosquitoes that use the water and the river as way of developement.
Walk on the town
You can just walk on the town. This is a very tiny town and relaxed one. You have nothing much going on and you'll see everyone chiling, eating mangoes and getting a bit of shade on the mango trees.
on the picture you have the street where almost all the grociery stores are located. During the lunch they are closed, only that one was kept open.
Shadow in Mango tree
There are so many mango trees in Gambia. You'll find them everywhrere you go. Its a tropical country. very good for mosquitoes remember take your malaria programe.
This is on the town centre and suuaalyhas a couple of ladies selling mangoes at a really cheap price.
This is the way to the town centre. Is strange how its so tiny and hidden. I passes with the car on this tiny street and almost didnt make it. I was actually getting worried about it, but all went well. When I ifnally got to the mango tree you can see on the picture, I just bought some kilos of that juicy fruit and enjoyed its wonderful taste and perfume.
Warehouses like this are very nice to see. They transmit some kind of old times I cant really explain that feeling. A must I say! You can fing them all over the town centre. remember Kuntaur is a port town so expect lots of these warehouses that might be full of groundnuts to export.
