Last week, there was some public uproar in Senegal. It was mostly the public 'against' the existing government.

It was only one day the protests reached Mbour, the nearest city to where we are. On that day, all shops near the main road were closed - it was a bit of an odd feeling. Luckily, nothing happened near to us.

For safety reasons, the government decided to close down schools for a week ... so this week both Roos and Stien are staying home (and catching up on their Belgian schoolwork ;-)


Right now, things have cooled down again - let's hope it stays that way in the weeks to come. In any case, it felt a bit unsettling that not much would be needed for a larger scale protest.
