Fadiouth in Sea Shells

 The cemetery between the twin villages of Fadiouth and Joal, Senegal, is covered in sea shells


A small sea shell island between Joal and Fadiouth hosts the villages' cemetery
 To be buried on the island, the individual must be a resident or descendant of a resident of Joal or Fadiouth
The villages pride themselves on being religiously tolerant as it is the only cementery in Senegal
where both Muslims and Christians are buried
