Over Easter, the man and I joined his mum and a family friend in one of their holiday homes in Ile D’Ngor, Senegal. It is a little island located off the peninsula of Cape Verde, a mere 5 minute boat ride from the village of N’gor.
To visit places I’ve dreamt of going, such as Lake Retba. The lake is famous for its milkshake pink colour due to algae in the water. Unfortunately the weather conditions weren’t perfect and the lake wasn’t pink, thus hugely dissapointing 😦
Note: The colour is particularly visible during the dry season (Nov-June)

Each Senegalese greets us with “ça va?” (French: how are you) and a big smile, and when we turn to go we say “leggi-leggi” to each other (Wolof: I see you very soon). So, thank you Senegal for a beautiful time and leggi-leggi!
