Flag of Senegal  ,
Tuesday, November 20, 2007

As a nice weekend break from my week of training in our Senegal office, I got the chance to visit Goree Island.  Goree Island, also known as House of Slaves, used to be a be a slave island during European colonization from 1536 to 1815 (almost 300 years!).  This was a tremendously humbling and enlightening experience.
