Eating at Pergola in Dakar

Pergola - February 2018First of all, HAPPY EASTER! Last time, I took you with me to the diverse Kabylie. Today, we are eating at Pergola in Dakar. The first time I went to Pergola was during my internship in 2015. Another intern at the time invited me to eat at Pergola, because her aunt and uncle run the place. From then on, we went more regularly. On Wednesdays, the restaurant offers the dish Méchoui. Since I’m back at Tigo, we usually go on Wednesday’s. Therefore, I really want to share with you our lunch at Pergola. Let’s get into the food!

Black Panther in Senegal

It has been about two years that we have been waiting for the release of Marvel’s Black Panther. However, ever since the announcement, the world has been impatiently waiting for its release. Teasers have been circling all over the internet and throughout the world. This includes funny memes, GIFs and hashtags such as #InWakanda. Of course, I was one of the many people that has been waiting a long time for the Black Panther release. In January, I contacted the cinema’s here in Dakar, asking if and when they would screen Black Panther. I was definitely happy to hear that they would premiere Black Panther on February 16th. Certainly, I was happier when I reserved myself a ticket for the original version (English spoken) of Black Panther for last Friday! In this post, I will tell you all about it. Keep on reading :).
