Senegal 2010 - Day 2
A big thank you to those who've sent us messages of encouragement. They have been much appreciated by the lads concerned.
On day 2 we visited a Benedictine monastery out in the Senegalese bush that is world-renowned for the way it has successfully fused traditional monastic (Gregorian) chant with traditional African music. Our guide was one of the 2 remaining French monks who came over from the French monastery of Solemnes in 1963 : Père Catta.
On our way to Keur Moussa monastery.
The chapel of the monastery at Keur Moussa.
Lunch at a local restaurant, basically a little shack on the corner of the road. VERY tasty curried rice cooked in peanut butter oil, with fried fish.
Transporting goods African-style.
