False Alarm

My travel plans have changed a bit, but I really am going to leave tomorrow. The new plan is to travel just within the Gambia, then leave through the Trans-Gambian Highway and visit my aunt in Kaolack.

The Gambia should be interesting for a few reasons. For one, it is a small stretch of land smack in the middle of Sénégal. Despite its tiny size, it is its own country. Also, the Gambia is an anglophone country. People keep telling me to “have fun with those accents”, and I like to think of it as “have fun with that dialect”. Who knows? I may pick up some interesting slang…

They also speak Wolof, although there are some interesting differences between the two forms.

I have also heard that (look at a map) Gambia is either the tongue that makes Sénégal speak or the thorn in its side, depending on how you look at it.

And I’m off!!
