[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This shot is associated to my yesterdays post.
It is an opportunity to share some moments I spent in Dakar with very warmful people.
These children are of the family of Marème, one of my trainees. They were so happy to welcome me home, to be taken in photo.
I met the whole family living in the same big house in the district of Medina, one of the districts of Dakar.

Hospitality is very important in Senegal, country of Teranga (hospitality in wolof).

Here is a link to a famous site about Senegal and you will find informations about the different districts of Dakar : senegal-online

Hospitality is a sacred thing in India as well. Though historically, that has often acted detrimentally for such countries ...
