... from spending a week in Ziguinchor with Lena & Zoe. The Casamance region is definitely greener and more beautiful than the northern regions of Senegal, it was weird to see so many trees.

The fishermen boats come ashore quite a few times in the morning. The early fishery is great, as they come ashore with their catch and they sell fresh fish to the locals and tourists nearby.
