West African Dakari - On the rocks with a twist

Bonsoir madames et monsieurs, bienvenue au Dakar! As usual I've a lot to cover so prepare for bullet point telegram style writing. It began with us sitting on the beach at 7am on Friday morning waiting for our boat to cross the River Gambia but this is Africa, so 7 slowly dragged out until 9:30 before we left Banjul. Arrived at the border; got passports stamped, refused to pay bribe, told to beware of Senegalese as "they're a bunch of thieves" and then hopped onto a horse and ...

another pair of trainers. A great, relaxing day.

This evening we shared one final meal before heading home from our West African ...
