Hi all. A photographic post today – heading to Senegal to the Island of Goree, a ferry ride from the capital Dakar. It’s a pretty place to visit, but it hides a disturbing colonial past. Ile de Goree was, between the 15th and 19th centuries known for its role in the slave trade. It may have a number of interesting French colonial buildings, and it may be close to the most visited place in Senegal as far as tourists are concerned, but it’s also a stark reminder of the past.
Thanks for stopping by today – May the Journey Never End!

My geography lesson for today – when I saw the heading I was trying to guess where Ile De Goree might be… I was way off!! Great photos.
Interesting… and a bit disturbing too. It’s horrible to think of what we humans inflict on our fellow kind.
Aye that is truth. Thanks for commenting Tim
