MY VISIT TO SENEGAL
2004 & 2016

My first visit to Senegal came at the end of a three month trek through four countries. It was Ramadan when I arrived in Dakar and the whole city was quiet except at night when every corner comes alive. I returned in 2016 after a long awaited desire to resume my previous trip which was cut short. This time I stayed in the North on the island of Saint-Louis. For three months I made art with other international artists-in-residence. The family that adopted me made attaya everyday! If you can find Senegalese food in your city, go eat it! Thiéboudienne is my favorite.

Attaya—Senegalese tea—is foamy, sweet and bitter. Families relax together and enjoy attaya after lunch or dinner.
