Traveling around Sénégal

Near the end of the fieldschool session, we decided to see as much of Senegal as we possibly could in a couple of days. Very fortunately, Amadou Thiaw (brother of our project director, Ibrahima) agreed to accompany us as our guide. We started our trip by heading south to the twin towns of Joal and Fadiout. Fadiout is a visually interesting island community consisting of Muslims and Christians. A nearby island houses the communities granaries, and another island, connected by a bridge, shelters a pretty-pretty cemetery. See more of our trip at Tripping Around Senegal
