98% of Senegalese is Muslim so you will find a lot of mosques in Senegal and a lot of their clothing included Muslim designs in It. However, the women’s clothing are JUST amazingly colorful and beautiful. I was told that women spent 90% of their money on clothing and jewelries. From what I had saw so far, I believe that’s true! However, they are do not like me taking photos of them, so I have to have my guide standing right there and I pretend to take photo of him:P..so funny:P
I went to a Dakar city center one day and tried to get some african clothing! But as usual, I got rip off and got a dress that’s not what I want. I will show them to you later and luckily I finally get that done in Gambia later:P
Dakar city is very modern and somehow dirty in American standard. But it is a major financial center, home to a dozen national and regional banks (including the BCEAO which manages the unified West African CFA currency), and to numerous international organizations, NGOs and international research centers. When I first tried to book hotel in the city center, almost all hotels are full because there were 2 important conference taking place there! And, it’s one of the most expensive city to live in west africa. Taking taxi and buying stuff can all cost you a fortune, however I can say it’s a SUPER SAFE CITY!
Below are the house where the president live:)
I was told you can find Pork in many restaurant since 2 % of Catholic are a lot of people in Senegal. Also, there’s big catholic church there. However you cannot compare it to those in Europe:P
Even the outside of the fish market is very grand. The inside is kind of dirty though…….
And you will find a lot of portable store selling phone cars, coffee and sandwich all around the city:) Very interesting.
I will stay in Senegal for maybe another 10 days and plan on going to see the most of this country. Do stick around. Cheers
