The past week, we joined the 4th of April (national independence day) celebrations in the nearby village Mballing. It was supposed to start at 10AM, but as things go in Senegal the whole thing actually started at 1PM. It was a fun afternoon, Stien participated in a small dancing contest and Dries took part in a sack race. We learned that by participating in events like these is the best way of showing respect to the local people and culture. Also, it was a lot of fun - obviously.
