[dropcap]D[/dropcap]akar, Senegal’s largest city and the country’s current capital, is well known for its eventful nightlife, congested traffic and endless open-air markets. Dakar is home to dozens of sights, such as hectic city streets, calming beaches and the controversial Monument de la Renaissance Africaine (African Renaissance Monument) – a gigantic statue said to represent African liberation.

The following photographs were taken throughout my month-long stay in Dakar.

    Loved all the pics!!! Would have enjoyed more close-up shots (e.g., open-air markets, night-life, congested streets, traditional vs. non-traditional garb, contrasting housing).

    • Yes, I agree! Unfortunately, photography is a bit of a touchy subject in Senegal. It’s best to take pictures of areas without many people – which can be pretty difficult, actually!
