Goodbye (for now) Senegal!

July 27, 2021

After eight busy, exciting, interesting, adventure-filled (and exhausting) weeks, here I am at the end of my time in Dakar. A lot of people have been asking me what I enjoyed the most, and while there are so many cool things I got to see and do, what’s really stood out to me... Read More

Feeling Hungry? A Glimpse into Senegalese Cuisine

July 19, 2021

My classes and activities are starting to wrap up, and though I’ve had a wonderful time in Dakar, I am starting to count the days until I head home (eight). There are some aspects of Senegalese culture that I won’t miss – the traffic congestion and car exhaust, the lack of... Read More

History, ecology, geology, oh my!

July 12, 2021

This week passed without any major excitement – but I realize that if this was my first week, I would be saying it was full of excitement! I had a literature class, another session of dance and djembe (the best one yet!), a museum visit, and I made good progress on my projects... Read More

What is there to do in Dakar?

July 12, 2021

This week was all about Dakar. A lot of my outings so far have taken me to the outskirts or outside of the city, but there’s so much to do right here! It’s always fun to get out and about, explore different regions, see new places, but I think a lot of times people forget... Read More

A Weekend in the Sine Saloum River Delta

June 28, 2021

This week marks the halfway point of my time in Senegal – already?? I’m starting to miss home a little bit, but it’s currently over 100 degrees F in my hometown of Tacoma, and the city of St. Paul where I go to school is covered in mayflies…so I’m happy to be in Dakar.... Read More

Music in Dakar

June 21, 2021

This week I was immersed in the very lively music scene of Dakar. Mostly it was fantastic, but I learned one very important lesson: time is a suggestion, not a rule. For example, last weekend when Yvanna and I went to see Wally Seck, we arrived shortly after 7pm for the 8pm... Read More

Quarantine Easter

April 24, 2020

Spring is here! That means both the Catholic and the Orthodox Easter have happened in the last two weeks, which made it feel double as difficult to be away from home. Two weekends ago, I happened to go for a walk, and forgot for a bit that people would be celebrating Easter.... Read More

Alternative Spring Break

April 17, 2020

This week brings out bittersweet feelings. On the one hand, it’s finally Spring break! The sun is shining, flowers are blossoming, the temperature is nice enough to wear those cute outfits we all packed for Paris, and of course — no more classes. On the other hand,... Read More

Paris in 15 seconds

April 9, 2020

Hi everyone, In this week’s post I am just sharing my latest project. Staying at home for so long isn’t easy, and since we can’t use our free time to visit any more of Paris’s beautiful sights, I decided to make a hyperlapse video of some of my favorite... Read More
