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.
2 years later, we revisited this place. Almost all signs of building a resort of any kind are taken down. The place feels abandoned ... maybe one or two little buildings were put up, but that was about it. Odd.
Also, we're (Liesbeth especially) increasingly able to express ourselves in Wolof - or at least get the general gist of what people try to say. This helps a lot, and shows how crucial it is to learn local language when moving abroad.
'Family time' might sound strange, but truth be told - it's not always easy to find the balance living together with other people in the house. So it felt really good to just be out and about with the four of us, not having to justify actions or discuss everything.
Chickens are sold at 2500 CFA a piece at the moment, unless someone buys larger quantities at once.
After leaving our pen, they were transported to the defeatherer, who charged 100 CFA / chicken to be processed (intestine and feather removal).
