It’s my favorite place to relax or have a fun time with friends, and it’s only a 30 min hike from my homestay!

Here it’s where I take a car to bring me to the city of Kedougou, where I go for shopping and Internet connection. Approximately a one hour and a half ride from Dindefelo.

 

THE ESCALE OF DINDEFELO.

Located in the center of the village, it’s where small boutiques (seen in the back of the photo) and vegetable/spice stands are located. You can find basic goods like
sugar, rice, powdered milk, soap, bread, etc. This is mumini, daughter of one of the sellers in the escale.
