We departed from Pointe de sarène and took a special car, the one which you can be 10 inside, to go to Mbour and from there a bus was supposed to go to foundiougne. We arrived at Mbour which is a typical city of sénégal, this is to say that there is a main road and the village is on either sides. We asked people where to take our bus but as usual they answered don't worry it will arrive in 1 hour take your time and so we did. We bought some fruits and some drinks and waited for the bus. After 1 hiur and a half, a bus arrived but the driver told us that they were no buses that went to Foundiougne from here and that we had to take a taxi. We discussed with other guys and they didn't know about the bus and told us to take a taxi, but a woman heared us and said to us the location of our bus, we just had to wait in front of a bakery. Finally our bus arrived and took us to foundiougne, from where we had to take a bac to cross the Sine, a big river there ( the area is called the Sine Saloum which are the main rivers of it)The bac is not expensive and it takes about 25 minutes to cross. After that we had toi go to Mbam the place where the family of Malik(the guy a popenguine who invited us) lived. We think this was the funniest way of transport we've ever taken, this was a cart with a horse pulling it. It was very dark and we said to the owner of the cart that we wanted to go to the family Top's house. He knew them of brought us there. We met there Fatou, a sister of malik who welcomed us very nicely. She told us where to sleep and the place of the toilet. We had a great sleep in a nice bed!!!
