TDan's African Journey

Saint Louis du Senegal, from Wikimedia


I've been following Toujoursdan's fascinating daily posts on his trip to Senegal (where a lot of my students come from). He also has a lot of splendid pictures from Senegal posted as well. Senegal might well surprise you. It's not quite what I expected.

It's a lot more interesting, and enlightening, than keeping track of the Anglican Wars these days, and I'm more than a little tired lately. I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving, not for Turkey dinner and Michael's family, but so I can get back into my studio and have some undisturbed time to work there.

For those who enjoy "graphic novels", one of the most enjoyable (for those who aren't stuck in "superhero" mode) is "Aya", about a Senegalese teen girl and her friends and family.
