  • Restaurant Keur Serigne Fallou

    Dakar Restaurants

    Very colorful decor and excellent local food for a reasonable price (main course 1500 CFA), the self appointed guides which you will have around you will most likely tell you it is closed (no commission for them). I had Riz Poisson Rouge. Located at Ave George Pompidou 45, first floor.

  • Flora and Fauna of Île de Gorée

    Ile de Goree General

    I really enjoyed the beautiful flowering plants that were all over Dakar and Île de Gorée. Bright and cheerful bougainvillea in pinks and whites were my favorites as they appeared even in the driest and dirtiest areas. Fan palms and interesting cacti added to the unique botanical treats of this island. Clearly, the favorite plant in Senegal is the...

  • Moustapha Dime

    Ile de Goree Local Customs

    We learned about Moustapha Dime from our impromptu tour guide of the artist colony of Goree Island. We were shown his home, which was in a former lookout tower on the fortress left from colonial days. It was here that Dime created some of the African art he became internationally famous for. Dime, an award winning sculptor who died in 1998 at the...

    Ile de Goree Restaurants

    Daughter-in-law wanted us to try a Senegalese burger which is sold on Goree Island at the Nono Café.

There is also some sort of “special sauce” – I’m not quite...

  • From Tambacounda to Guinea

    Tambacounda Transportation

    From Senegal the best way to Guinea might be by way of Manda, a newly built bus terminal close to the eastern end of Gambia. Sept Place (shared taxi, usual old Peugoet 505) go there from Tambacounda (2000 CFA and 2 hours), Dakar, Kolda, Basse Santa Su (The Gambia), and Guinean. Sept Place wait there until full for Conakry (20000 CFA, if lucky 20...

    This woman comes from the fish market. The basket on her head is filled with fresh fish. Look at how straight up she walks with the basket on her head, while her hands are doing something else.
