Part of the work of the orphanage where we donated money from our research (see below) is to protect albino children. The day we went they were having a celebration and donating eye glasses to these children.
In Dakar there are small Arabic schools packed with kids learning the language. This particular one I went into was really crowded and the kids were very excited to see me. The teacher was nice but he did have a whip and the kids were following his orders.
Tea is a big deal in Senegal and I made friends with some local guys who made me tea. It was a great experience and the tea was fantastic. (It's a long process.)
After making the donation, we went to Goree Island where there is a slave castle and the famous door of no return where Obama stood. The Island is really nice and the people are very friendly. Between making the donation and then spending the rest of the day on the Island it was a pretty great day.
