... best fish is immediately put on ice and shipped to Europe.The streets are filled with new sports utes with the odd horse pulling a cart loaded with cement blocks or piles of wood.

One of the earliest European settlements along the Senegalese coast, it was an important trading center during the 18th and 19th centuries. Trade included both material goods and slaves. Merchants built houses in which they would live or work in the upper storey and store their 'cargoes' on the lower floor.
