On Saturday we visited the largest mosque in Senegal which is also (one of?) the largest mosque(s) in Sub-Saharan Africa. We spent the majority of the day either in the car (10 hours total) or waiting for lunch (3 hours total, spent in a weird room with red and white egg chairs that frankly just didn’t make sense being in Senegal). We had a 30 minute tour which was beautiful, although apparently my host dad (who is a sculptor/architect) says the pink marble isn’t the best quality and he just doesn’t like it. Lunch was fantastic, with such good pepper-paste stuffed chicken and lots of good sauce and veggies (yes, I did just say that). After getting back from Touba we went out to Koul Graul, a once a month dance party on the beach! Lots of good and strange music like the one I posted not too long ago (black samurai).
I figure as long as I’m not posting, I might as well give you some of the posts that other people are doing! This visit to the holy city of Touba took place while my parents were in Senegal! While I went to see the home base of the Mauride brotherhood, Mumsie and Papsie were in Toubab Dialaw (see earlier posts) having a grand old time learning batik dying and drumming, and hanging out on the beach!
