Images of Senegal

- October 11th, 2012

One of the privileges of working as a Parliamentary reporter for Sun Media is getting to travel with the prime minister on his various trips.  While there is little time for tourism on these trips, you still get to see a lot of interesting things.  Here are some of the images I’ve been able to capture on my cellphone – mostly from the minibus carrying media back and forth from various events.  Enjoy.

    The first photo reminds of back home in the west indies. The smell of fish or the stench from the wharfs doesn’t bother us one bit. The breeze from the salty ocean is refreshing to the soul.
    The Trinidadian gently breeze tends to ease the humidity and heat.
