Hope all is well :). This post is about the town I was born in: Podor, a town located all the way in the north of Senegal. Across the river you can see Mauritania. There are a lot of Senegalese people that live in Mauritania and vice versa. Additionally, Podor has a fort that was built in 1854 that was used as a centre for gold trading. I will show you the pics I took this february!
Soo, I basically visit my grandmother there
everytime I am in Senegal. My opinion? I find the town very nice if you have your own house there, and need some time to think or get inspired. It is quiet compared to the noisy and crowded city Dakar.
a hot mess
Other than that, it is very hot and during the summer the temperature can rise up, and even thinking will make you sweat lol. But would I ever want to live in there for at least a year? Lol, NO WAY. And the reason is because compared to Dakar, Podor is more a village.. People talk way too much about things that are not their business in the first place, and there are a lot of things that should be openly talked about, but is not talked about. I am not saying that Dakar is the perfect place to live, but at least people live and let others live too. But do I love Podor? YESSSS.
