One of the highlights of the Gorée Fieldschool was a day trip, led by Raina Croff, to the island of Ngor, just north of Dakar. First we took the ferry to Dakar, then jumped in a car-rapide headed for the northern coast of Dakar.
The next leg of the journey involved a ride in a large pirogue to the beautiful little island. Ngor has 2 swimming beaches, narrow alleys marked by bougainvilla, and an art market.
We swam, explored much of the island, and even bought some art.
