Students arrived in Dakar at 5 am, one half hour early.  After a light petit dejeuner and our first group photo near the lighthouse on the edge of Dakar, we travelled for about 2 hours to Thiès.  After settling in at our hotel we enjoyed a lunch of Sénégal’s national dish of ceebu jën (Wolof spelling). After lunch some played hacky sack while others rested from their 24-hour journey.
