Below: This was the destination of one of our hikes with Hassan.  It is called "Bob Marley's Stage."  It is a rock ledge in the middle of a cliff that looks out over a valley.

This was from a soccer game between the team from Dinguraye (green) and Labe (white and blue).  It was a good game, but unfortunately the team from Labe was a little better.

If you noticed that I seemed to be wearing the same clothes a lot, it is because my luggage was lost on the way over and I didn't get it until about three weeks later!
