Prior to reaching West Africa, we received a number of warnings from Oceania such as don’t wear jewelry, don’t wear patriotic clothing, don’t keep wallets in back pockets, etc. and to expect delays, no air conditioning on the buses, infrequent rest rooms, rest rooms not to our standards, etc. This was all followed up with the slogan, “Be an explorer, not a tourist”. Consequently, on Saturday we set out to explore our first West African country, Senegal. Our port was the capital, Dakar. Our tour was to take a bus to the Pink Lake, take a four wheel drive around the dunes at the lake, have lunch, visit a market, and visit a village for a cultural performance.
As warned the night before, the immigration people were late arriving and we left for our tour about fifty minutes late. The good news though was that the bus was air conditioned. The weather was sunny with temperatures in the high 70’s with low humidity, so the air conditioning wasn’t vital.

Now that she’s been at Ipanema nothing else is good enough!
Haha! We know Susan too well!
Looks like Senegal was more interesting than the 2 previous ports. Have fun!
