I plan to write about the overwhelming emotions when I first arrived in Dakar, Senegal for the beginning of my 3 years in the Gambia – all the people, expectations, and challenges that were clouded by cultural and language differences that I was unsure I could navigate.

Then I will tell about those many meeting in Dakar and the “Grand Central Station” Guest House plus the drives or flights between Banjul and Dakar. It did play a big part in my total Gambia Adventure!

But for now, I have only a very few photos (most were lost/destroyed). I did make a few in the 2009 visit.  Eventually I will add stories here.
