Dallas' Journey to Senegal

Current Location

Dakar, Senegal

Hello, and welcome to Senegal! My name is Dallas, and I'm so excited to have you join me as I study the national sport of Senegal: wrestling! Let's explore this amazing country and culture together.


I'm back in the US for some conferences right now, but in this Logbook you can read about an amazing trip I took to a seashell-covered island and a town where I met a giant!


Belonging to a group is an important part of Senegalese society. When you show you are willing to assimilate, people will go out of their way to help you...and even forgive the occasional faux pas!

Field Notes

In this Field Note, I go for a walk with a few thousand friends and attend a naming ceremony.
