Field Notes

Fish and rice are integral to Senegalese cuisine; the national dish of Senegal, Ceebu Jeen, just means "fish and rice" and it represents so much about Senegalese culture!


I hope these photos can give you a glimpse of the city landscape of Dakar! In many ways it's very different than the United States, but beautiful all the same.
