Sobo Badé-L'Engouement: An Active But Contemplative Place To Relax

Have you experienced a far away place to which you return over many years but which stays fresh and fascinating and wonderful every time you go there. That is how I feel about Senegal. Here are several photos from one of my many favorite places in Senegal, Sobo Badé and l'Engouement. It is a fabulous place to relax, do artistic work, write, meditate, walk on the beach, dance, drum, contemplate, enjoy some fine cooking.

Beautiful! I would love to go there some day. The Field Museum had an exhibit many years ago of a market in Senegal. Ever since I saw that I've wanted to visit.
