But don’t be tempted, as there are more interesting sites than your time will allow. Get away from Dakar and see some of Senegal’s gems including Pink Lake, a rare phenomenon located only an hour from Dakar, where the high concentration of salt and microorganisms gives the water its unique pink color. A twenty minutes ferry ride takes you to Goree Island, where the tranquil atmosphere and pastel-colored houses betray Goree’s infamous past. If you are near Dakar on Sunday you may schedule a few hours to visit Abbaye de Keur Moussa, a Benedictine monastery built in the early 1900s and where Sunday mass is celebrated accompanied by traditional African musical instruments such as Koras, Balafons, and Soft Drums.Link – https://bit.ly/3bFfjK7
