    [post_content] => Senegal is about peeling back the layers of yourself
And trying to fill that inner space with good

Where everything you have is what you give
Together is the only way to live

On the wind towards the East to music and mosquitoes, attaya and alhumdullilahs.
We lived, we danced, we walked, we grew before returning West with the setting sun.

People here like to hold hands.

Eating peanuts on the Alham. Squeezed between two yaays
Hot air on my face, bringing distant Laye-Layes

Their arms spread wide, they laughed and gladly gave to me their world.

Stop, look around
Take a moment to sit on the ground
Go to the beach
And squat on your feet
Yoff is the best place in town

Senegal is a word, spring from your heart, I loved it
Caressed my ears. I wanted to tell, you couldn’t hear I penned it.

The short answer is that Senegal was good
The longer answer will have to take place over attaya

Here we are. Finally at transference. It's been a long, beautiful, twisting, surprising road to get here. To conclude our time in Dakar, we had one last group visit - to the University of Cheikh Anta Diop in Dakar. We exchanged with first and second English students about the challenges and rewards of university, what it is like to live away from home, and the difficulties in learning a foreign language. On Saturday afternoon, we hosted the homestay families at Preston's home, Mbayene. It was a lively afternoon filled with gratitude and recognition, gift-giving and hug-receiving, beignets (sweet doughnuts) and fatayas (meat-filled pastries) with local juice, and a few teary-eyed guests. ---- We will be in Toubab Dialaw, a relaxing fishing village along the Petite Cote, from Sunday May 24 through Thursday May 28. We will use this time to intentionally reflect on our year in Senegal, to look towards our return back home and later on to Princeton, and to recognize each other's contributions and to give gratitude. We will have limited internet access while in Toubab Dialaw. Look forward to an update or two once we are back in Dakar on May 24, before concluding our program on May 31. With Gratitude, Elke and Babacar

    [post_content] => Hello friends and family!

We just got back from a relaxing and spiritually fulfilling weekend in Dene. While there, we listened to Babacar's dad teach suras from the Qur'an, took a day trip to Lac Rose (a lake turned pink by its salt content), and spent several afternoons making attaya and enjoying Dene's peaceful atmosphere. On Monday, we took a detour to Keur Moussa, a monastery famous for its hand-made koras and goat cheese. We then stopped by Thies for lunch before arriving back in Yoff in the late afternoon.

This past weekend was our last excursion before transference, which is tentatively set around the third week of May. It was a wonderful few days, but we're all very happy to be back home. More details in the coming weeks about transference and the end of our Bridge Year.

The time has finally come for our final voyage before transference - the second half of our x-phase trip. We decided to spend our last adventure going back to Dene, to reconnect with our spirituality and spend a few days in the sand and under the stars. We will not have internet connection until Monday. Have a nice weekend!

    [post_content] => A quick update that was written while on the student-led excursion at the end of March:

Hi. Just a quick update on our trip. Writing from Kembemer, a small town we've stopped in during our drive to Lompoul. 'Twas great to see all of our old friends and family in Niodior, as well as to soak in the physical and cultural beauty of the island. Jamie went swimming with her little brothers; Crystal got to attend school with her younger sister; Lauren helped her fam cook lunch; Sebastian watched movies with his bro; Daniel sat outside drinking attaya and chatting with the village boys; and Preston watched his brothers climb coconut trees in order to get an afternoon snack. In Keur Bamboung we did a little kayaking and hiking, but most of the time was spent just kickin' back, enjoying the silence and space. Last night was spent in Kaolack, an environment quite the opposite to Keur Bamboung – loud, crowded, and industrial – but nonetheless interesting to see. The trip has been going so smoothly that our instructors decided to throw a curve ball our way this morning. The group woke up to find a note from the instructors saying that they'd ditched us, and that we'd have to find our way to next stop, Diorbel, on our own. Fortunately, our trusty pal and caravan driver Diaw got us there safe and sound. In Diorbel this afternoon, we got to see the rad mosque made of straw, and from there we've been making our way to Lompoul. We're all pumped to get to the festival, and you'll hear from us about it upon our arrival home to Yoff on the 7th :)

Update from Spring Excursion

BYP Senegal Cohort,Princeton Bridge Year Senegal 2014-15

Description

A quick update that was written while on the student-led excursion at the end of March: Hi. Just a quick update on our trip. Writing from Kembemer, a small town we’ve stopped in during our drive to Lompoul. ‘Twas great to see all of our old friends and family in Niodior, as well as to […]

Salaam aleikum!

My greetings to you and your community! My name is Jenny and I will be joining the Senegal Bridge Year Program in less than a week as a supporting instructor. This past summer, I had the joy of instructing a Dragons course in Senegal with  Elke and Babacar, and I am thrilled to be once again zipping up my bug hut alongside them once more.

Who is this Dragon coming to stay with you for the next four weeks? I grew up in Colorado, I love to dance, and my favorite vegetable (discovered later in life) is cassava. For the past four years I have been a nomad and experiential educator, living in a tipi, a yurt, a tent, or out of a backpack. In recent months, however, my backpack has been living with me in London, gathering dust under my bed. I'm at the University of London writing a Masters degree in the Anthropology of Travel and Tourism. I am seeking some clarity all the big ideas that often float to the top of my brain while leading courses for Dragons. Travel is the largest and fastest growing industry on the planet. As the beating heart of globalization, travel intersects with important questions in international development, colonial histories, cross-cultural encounters, authenticity, and morality. I'm focusing my research on service-based tourism in sub-Saharan Africa, and would love to chat about it over some ataya (or café Touba, if that's your poison).

London today is predictably chilly and grey. But if I close my eyes, I can hear the call to prayer, the bleating of sheep on rooftops, the mischievous giggles of Astou and Mamati, and the Wolof greetings that followed me through Yoff market last July. I can feel the sand in my flip-flops, the refreshing sweatiness, the delicious oil of red ceeb on my fingers. Even as I follow your yak board from afar, each of your individual selves remain to be discovered. It is with immense gratitude and great joy that I join your group during this exciting time-- student expedition planning and the Festival du Sahel! I look forward to the opportunity to meet you and learn what wisdom you have to share after having spent nearly seven months in Senegal.

Be ci kanam tutti rekk!

Jenny (Djenaba Diallo)

    [post_content] => Hi everyone. Long time no talk. I just wanted to give you guys a heads up that the team will be leaving Dakar on Friday the 27th, and we’ll be back Tuesday the 7th. The last three months of our time here is called the “X-phase”, in which the students take a bit more control over the running of the program. This includes a trip in which we decide where we want to go and what we want to do, along with all the budget, transportation, lodging, and logistical stuff that comes along with it. So, on the 27th we’re first headed to Niodior. Niodior is the island we stayed at for a couple days back around the New Year. We loved the island and its people so much that we wanted to visit again. On the 29th, we’ll leave Niodior to go to Keur Bamboung, another coastal spot just a couple hours boat ride away. All I know about Keur Bamboung is that it’s naturesque, something we’ve been missing a bit here in Dakar; and so we hope to get some kayaking, hiking, and clean oxygen in. On the 31st, we’re skidaddling out of Keur Bamboung to begin a long drive up to Lompoul, the desert we visited several weekends ago. On our way to Lompoul, we’ll pass through Sokone (to visit Elke’s homestay when she was a student here), Kaolack (where we’ll spend the night of the 31st), and Diourbel (apparently they have a mosque made out of straw). We should, if all things go according to plan, land in Lompoul the night of the 1st. We’ll be in Lompoul until the 7th, where we will be volunteering at a music festival called Festival du Sahel. But let’s be honest, we’re really there just to listen to some dope music in the desert. Should be a fun trip! Expect contact from your kids the 7th or the 8th! :)

Hey friends and family,

This coming weekend, we'll be traveling to Ndioukhane, the village where we did our group service project in September. Our visit will coincide with certain initiation ceremonies to which we've been graciously invited. We'll get a chance to partake in the community's traditions and learn more about their function, and we'll be reunited with our Ndioukhane homestay families. Our stay will be a short one (leaving Sunday morning and returning Monday evening), but we're all very excited to be revisiting the village at such an important time. And though we won’t have internet access while we're there, we’ll be sure to fill you in on the festivities with pictures (and videos perhaps?) once we get back!
