Part VII: Downtown Saint-Louis

 a stroll along the Senegal river with its seasoned pirogues in Saint-Louis, Senegal

Place Faidherbe with the Governor's Palace looming in the background
from where France ruled her African colonies

 downtown Saint-Louis

whoever brought bougainvillea to Senegal must be thanked
please note the stick in her mouth: the traditional way the Senegalese clean their teeth
[tradition has it while chewing the stick you can hypnotize the person to whom you're speaking]

Many thanks to the Traveling Greener blog 
for choosing TIA: Cette est l'Afrique as one of the "10 Africa Blogs You'll Love"
