so now here is senegal, btw not christian but 90 percent muslim, it just doesnt look that way.
There is no hiding your face, woman dont go 2 steps behind their husbands and look actually quite able to look for themselves.
Trust is the problem here ...the guys in my guesthouse gave their senegalese friend the money to buy some carpentry for them and of course he was robbed on the way and came back with nothing...lame...he doesnt even really try to hide that he is stealing...
Everyone lives on nothing here because once u earn stuff the rest of your family will be on you until there is nothing left for you except to work your ass off for the lazy bastards who call themselves your family.
Ask any Westafrican in ur home-country how often he goes home and you will hear never ever after the first time.
Cause if they do they will loose everything they have, stealing would be the name of the game if this isnt their own family. In this aspect not so different from coutries like thailand where you also never get any money back if you were stupid enough to lend anything to a friend.
He will just ask you for more, not having any idea to pay anything back to you.

The sea is eating the beach fast btw, everyday some trees fall...really sad to see..
Reason is stupidity.
They cut a channel trough so the pirouges didnt have to go the long way, now the village oppsite is destroyed, and all the other places downriver seem to be doomed also...

here i am in a really nice camping, but the sandbank in front broke away....in the last 3 months they lost 2 kms, now it is eating away the beach, and the guesthouse didnt really even open until now...that sucks...u put all your money into your dream, and then you loose everythink in months...senegal is wrong...the difference between western and local (coffe is 50 cfe, one night sleep easy 10000 cfe) is just to big.

I cant say i like the other travellers...in mauretania they are really cool here they are same kind of people i meet in germany. Not cool...

I went with really cool people down to the border, but at the border they had to pay money (bribes) which they didnt want to, so they could not pass....after some time another guy gave me a lift to st lous, i didnt even have a chance to repay thei kindness so now i feel kind of guilty because i left em...

ok, i dont have more time to write, cu
