I often find it weird when peddlers try to sell me electronic items made in
Asia. It's like trying to sell ice to the Eskimos.
We bought our air tickets to
Praia ( Cape Verde) and from Praia to Bissau ( Guinea-Bissau) at the Air Senegal International office in downtown Dakar, and then head for on a ferry. Goree, a former French slave station off Goree Island , is also an UNESCO World Heritage Site. The island may have a tragic history but is today a pleasant and easy day trip out of Dakar . Many well-restored colonial buildings and picturesque setting with the skyline of Dakar 's skyscrapers in the foreground. Glad to be back in tourist country after many days in "difficult" countries such as Dakar Cote d'Ivoire, Liberia, Sierra Leone and . Guinea
