Part I: Leaving Dakar

 heading out of Dakar and chilling, Senegalese style
car rapide heading toward Rufisque

we drove toward Lac Rose, luckily not on the outside of a car rapide

 where we paused long enough to take in the fabled source of Lac Rose

 then we drove north and passed this tucked away mosque in the middle of nowhere

until we embarked on this path into the dunes....

 The Senegalese paparazzi made an appearance

for a visiting head of state

That's Alpha Condé, President of Guinea, on his first official visit to Senegal

I'm Going Nomad!

 I'm going nomad! 
[apparently in a car rapide]
My favorite graffiti in Dakar thus far

 Les Alamedies neighborhood - Dakar

 To give perspective of just how large the African Renaissance Monument is, 
try and find the woman waving

 There is a flag for each African country in front of the monument

Les Liqueurs de Warang

 Tasting at Les Liqueurs de Warang gardens near Mbour, Senegal

 My favorite: Kombonella (Orange, Lemon, Grapefruit liquor).  
It tasted like Key Lime Pie to me but Lemoncello to everyone else

 L.d.W.  distillery

 outside the distillery
 Liquor tastings in citrus, bissap, passion fruit, chocolate coffee banana...
