Train station in Dakar? Yes! Trains that actually use it? Skeptical...

The train station in Dakar, Senegal

Hanging out at the station.  The train has tracks to Bamako, Mali.
I'm told trains run between the two...I'll believe it when I actually see it.

look closely, you'll see everything from mangos to papayas to palm oil to peanuts to cashews
and this man is a perfect example of how tall the Senegalese are

Playing fusball at the station.  Everywhere I've been in Senegal--
major cities, small villages, huts in the middle of absolutely nowhere--has had a fusball table.
