Senegal: Thoughts on Leaving

Mark on the beach at Palmarin
Senegal is a pretty good introduction to West Africa, with its lovely beaches, friendly people and interesting culture

I didn't like Senegal much when I first arrived, but this was almost entirely down to me, not the country. I was horribly homesick (and I still am, every now and then), I was horribly sick, and I seriously wondered whether I was going to be able to get into the travelling mentality again. I was rather concerned that in the four years since the end of my last bout of travelling, I'd become settled.
