Puesta de sol en Kafountine


-Kasumay!

We endured the heat of Casamance in a Ndiaga Nidiaye from Elinkine to back to Ziginchor, spent another night in this city, and took another Ndiaga Ndiaye to Kafountine the following day and finally made it! Transport is definitely something else in Senegal, a real test to one's patience and endurance.

Kafountine was great, a long strand of white sand with hardly any people whatsoever, the perfect place to chill-out and restore one's energy. We found a little bungalow by the beach and decided to take it easy for a couple of days. And we tried to, but we were immediately absorbed by the activity at the fihing village when boats come back after three long days at sea, surfing in on the rollers. People run to collect the fish and even more people work on their salting, smoking or drying out on the sun, while a few others carve and paint the typically colourful pirogues of Senegal. Amazing!

We've had a very nice time in Kafountine, but now it is time for Gambia. Let's see if we manage not to have a bat in our room in our next destination!

Thank you once again for all your sweet messages, thank you to my mother, Leyre, Lis & Co., Toni, Vero, Simona, Hernan, Jess and Noe.

See you all in Gambia!!!!

Idoia & Mikel.
