Goree Island used to be an island to transfer Slave to America, Caribbean and Brasil! Me and Martine spent a night in this beautiful island and had fun time over there knowing about the history and relax on the beach.
-If local tried to rip you off and make the price 10 times more than it used to be, just see that as a Generous Donation!
-If local tried to sell you stuff and be your tour guide, just be happy because at least they are not trying to rob you or beg money from you!
Funny but TRUE! When we got on the island, a guy tried to show us around and we just let it be! He showed us around the island
and took us to his house:) His house used to be an underground storage center of the french army-amazing!
Then we went to the big CANON and discovered an underground center over there. Local now live inside and we found it SO AMAZING:)
Then we went to the slave museum(the slave trade is relatively small in here compare to other places but i will show you all when I get to the biggest slave trade center when I get to Ghana!)
The door of NO RETURN. When slave leave this door, they never had a chance to come back to Africa again!
Martine is kind of SAD, so went to see how the local make painting out of sand!
And tour around the beautiful island:)
This island is small but beautiful and it remind me so much of the Caribbean again…except people dress up beautifully:)
And it my turn:P
After a long day we relaxed in the beautiful terrace and have a long chat about africa. The situation is complicated and I hate to talk about politics. But I can tell you all it’s NOT dangerous at all in some part of Africa, you just need to be street smart as you are in your own country.
