Haggling For A Taxi In Senegambia

Gambian Cab

We hailed a cab from outside the hotel which took us directly to the tourist strip. There were not many people out as most of them were probably at the concert. We started off drinking at a Pizzeria. The man serving the drinks seemed to take a liking to me and served me a triple shot instead of a single. (RESULT!) He said he was 28. I thought he was lying because he looked about 40. Deborah said that he must have just had a hard life. Anyhow it made me chuckle. When he served the next drink as a single instead of adding a little extra I was time to move on.

The Lecherous American Fool in Bakau

Lecherous fool

We arrived in Bakau, Gambia on a Friday night. On Saturday night we hit the road looking for food. Our hotel served no African food, authentic or otherwise. Everything was served with chips (fries) and cabbage. We enter a hotel not too far down the road from us. There is a guy wondering round on the grounds. He is kind of cute and wearing a purple and gold African print shirt. Hmmm… Talent in The Gambia and it’s only the second day. I’m impressed!
