We are supposed to travel to a village by ourselves, stay for a week, explore different topics there and then return to Dakar. Alejandra and I felt differently about these requirements. After about 3 minutes of complaining Alejandra and I were set up to go together to Ile de Mar Lodj in the delta region, (possibly with a beach) and stay at an auberge rather than a host family (an auberge is another word for apartment but it really means a bare bones lodging). To be fair, we probably wont have electricity there and almost definitely no hot water considering we don't even have that in Dakar. But still we are very excited for our "rural visit" courtesy of Baobab Center.
We return next wednesday sometime, unless we decide to spend more time there or come back early, and of course barring any bus breakdowns and so forth.
I'll have reporting to do on that when I get back, but until then, have fun in you're non-village locations.
