... into the water (on the beach) all the rubbish from his boat. However there is a lot of building, residential in particular, going on there, so the whole place is slated for expansion.

Contorted old Senegal date palms sway over beds of herbs and leafy-greens, with tiny irrigation channels separating each small square plot. It looks like something straight out of Egypt, and given that I can see Egypt on the other side of the Gulf, it shouldn’t be too surprising. But it IS really cool. I wish I’d brought my camera.
