Hey you guys! I'm taking British Poetry at school, and recently we had an assignment to write about a place in nature in imitation of the romantic poets. I ended up writing about Senegal and I wanted to share my poem with you. I hope you enjoy it! :)

Dindifello

I lounge in stillness; from my perch I feel
These many sleeping forms that me surround
Imbue a sense of calmness to the scene,
I contemplate their efforts aided by
The ceiling fan, which sends the slightest breeze.
I shut my eyes against the spinning blades
That ruthless cut like knives across my sight,
And turn my mind instead to gentler things,
Like how the light doth play against my lids
And dance in patterns that speak of other times.
I cannot help but think my soul grows wings
To carry me through summer memories;
My fingers skimming Oceans, vast, of Time,
I close my eyes and fly to Senegal.

Again I visit Dindifello, home
To my beloved waterfall. And I,
I once again crane my neck to the sky
To seek the peak of those vertiginous
Cascades, regard with awe the jagged, sheer
Expanse of rock, no doubt by lightning carved
Or by the sword of Time incised,
And drink the sparkling water with my eyes.
Again I sink with joy into the cold—
Cold shocking after many weeks of heat—
Embrace, and let the waters close above
My head, and icy, trembling me caress;
I dive, I frolic, and I swim as Time
Immeasurable floats by like debris.
I glide into the outskirts of the falls,
Where me a mystical mist finely shrouds;
I venture further; droplets kiss my cheeks;
Yet farther go I; torrents strike my back,
Importing the full force, terrifying,
Enchanting, powerful, and thunderous,
Of Dindifello, of Nature, to me.

I don’t presume to know what lies in store;
I may return to Senegal or not,
But always will I cherished moments hold
In some recess or chamber of my mind,
And safely guard these memories, and thus
Ensure safe passage to the past on wings
Of thought. In quiet seconds of repose,
I’ll soar; I’ll remember the sensation
Of rivulets that run along my spine,
My shoulders strong beneath a waterfall.
You may join me now if you so dare;
Come plunge into the deep pools of my verse,
And on the feathered limbs of fancy ride.

Greetings everyone -

Assalam Malekum (I wish I had learned how to spell that!)

I've been meaning to write something for days, just waiting for the perfect words to pop into my head.... and now suddenly this morning I feel like its about time (even though I'm not yet sure exactly what I want to say).

It feels kind of strange to be posting a yak yak here - its so quiet! I'm sitting at the kitchen table in a family-friend's house in martha's vineyard island. Its a beautiful day- perfectly clear sky, slight breeze, warm in the sun but cool in the shade. Sitting here with a mug of tea and the remnants of a chocolate croissant, and my journal, I really could not be more comfortable. But as usual when I find myself in a such a pleasant, perfect place I can't help comparing. I can't help thinking of a place where there are no personal computers, and beautiful empty houses artistically equiped with such ordinary things as chairs, lamps, refigerators, microwaves and mowed fenced-in lawns - where there is no such thing as skim milk and piles of white paper napkins.

I think about it walking through grocery stores, restaurants, gyms....I see people walking by with their strollers and shopping bags and can't help listening to their conversations about this and that (since I can actually understand them). I find myself wondering what it would be like to live your whole life thinking this is it -being conscious of unknown, distant places, but only seeing them as colorful geometric shapes on the world map, or disturbing photographs in national geographic, hardly more real than the scary things you see in the movies.

I know that this is still the limit of my knowledge of the majority of the world. But I am so, so greatful now that one tiny bit of this great unknown has been made real to me. Senegal is no longer a dream-land to me (although while I was there I sometimes felt like I had dropped into a fairy tale). It is a real, tangible, hot, smelly, dusty, beautiful, quirky place. It is a place with history, depth and character - full of young and old people with their own cares, problems and dreams - people who could never imagine life outside of their villages, life with big supermarkets and elevators and drive-through take-out.

So thankyou everyone - mom, dad, mo and pop-pop, and everyone else who made the trip possible for me. Thanks to Mbouille, Inbal, Carolyn and of course all you gurke and kartoffel fans out there (those would be the other students on our trip) for the experiences and memories of this summer. It is so important to me that I am able to sense, even at the randomest moments during my extraordinarily comfortable, pleasant life, that that other slice of the world is really there, millions of miles away.

Sending my love to you all,

Gaya

Dear all,

This morning I sat down and finally read all the Yak Yaks that have been posted since the beginning of the trip. I think I knew it would be bittersweet, so I wanted to delay it as long as possible.

Now, as on that night just a few days ago when we said goodbye at the airport in Dakar, my heart is full.

Thank you for your words, your joy, your struggles, your strength, your music, and your presence this summer. I hope we will all be together again someday.

Inbal

Here we are, August 9th, still travelling. Our flight was diverted to Bangor, Maine, yesterday afternoon, but finally, at 11pm, we found ourselves at the Courtyard Marriott in NYC for the night. Starving, we first used every resource available to reach a Chinese food restaurant and enjoyed a midnight feast delivered to our room.

Surprisingly and happily, Senegal seems to have followed us to New York. At breakfast, decked in our colorful pagnes, we were immediately picked out by a certain hotel employee as having ties to his country.

He asked if we were from Senegal, and we replied with a smile, "yes". We discussed our travels, our gris gris, our limited abilities to speak Wolof. (He gave a us a steep discount of breakfast, arguing that we Senegalese must take care of our own!) His abundant joy at our love of his country made us realize how amazing our experience truly was, and just how much our new knowledge can mean to others that we meet.

As we were leaving, our new friend asked if we would see each other in Senegal, and we replied, to his surprise and delight, "Inshallah".

Hey all,

I just sat down and read over your posts from Dakar (both pre and post Toubab Diallaw), and they are beautiful! It's funny, I sat down to find the number for a Thai restaurant for take out, but despite my intentions I found myself typing in wheretherebedragons.com. Your words are so beautiful, and each yak yak calls different memories to my mind.My eyesactually started to tear when I read Walker's P.S. quoting Charlotte (or paraphrasing perhaps), "We have come so far, and learned tolove this world more. I think that now, we will refuse to settle for less."

I am definitely missing you all, wishing I had Mbouille and Inbal here with me to share stories of our adventures (misadventures) in travel returning from Senegal yesterday. Who knew that the rugged adventure part would apply to the return trip?! You all handled everything with the grace, humor, goodwill and style that characterized your approach to broken down transport and late meals and baby and bird droppings throughout the trip. What's another five hours in the plane when we've come so far and have come to love the world so much.

It's such a relief not to have to ask anyone about their poop scale or to ensure that everyone took their meds (but do take your meds!), but I also have to say that I really miss you all! You taught me so much about Senegal and renewed my sense of awe that this is the work I get to do in the world. And you made me laugh a lot and made such beautiful music together.

I hope you are all well! Jamm tun, sahelbe an!

Carolyn

Today is my last day here in Senegal.

I've been thinking back on the trip: our first week in Thies, our trek around Kedougou, our homestay in Kounkane, our stay in Dakar, our visit to Touba and the beaches. I remember each of these places so vividly, every detail is present. I'm scared that with time these images might fade or disappear altogether. Is there a way to prevent that? A way to remember every person, every place, every smell, sound and sight? I don't know. Even now when I look back and remember being in a place, I can see myself there, but its like I'm looking downatmyself. Seeing myself from above. Was I really in a tiny village nestled among the mountains holding a child on my lap just 4 weeks ago? For some reason its hard for me to believe even though I know, in my mind, thatI was there.

Hey!

I don't have the slightest inkling of what I should write on this afternoon here in Yoff, hours away from our epic return journey, and goodbye. It's been a lovely last two days by the sea in Toubab Jallaw. I swam a few times; it was so fantastic to float upon the sea and stroke through the water as the large swells beached themselves, hoping to ride one back to shore. We had some great times just sitting around and talking about life, love and latkes, and some more structured group pondering and reflexion to prepare us for this difficult change of place. We created a supergroup, NATURAL IDENTICAL FLAVOUR, for when B. & the T.'s and Gurke & Kertoffel tour togethah. I'm too in love with this place and everyone I've met to leave without a heavy heart. Still, I will not despair, 'coz I have a feeling that this group of fine friends is not gonna be weakened by spacial differences. I can't wait to see you, family, and friends.

Love

Walker (Sadio)

P.S. We have come so far, and learned to love this world more. I think that now, we will refuse to settle for less. (-Char)

The past few days have been spent in the beautiful beach area known as Toubab Dialao. We all enjoyed the many amentities that we have been missing over the past 6 weeks, showers and beds especially. But our time at the beach was not to simply escape the real Senegal and enter a nice, touristy hotel, as we spent most of our time reflecting on what we have observed and learned on this trip, and preparing ourselves for the culture shock we will face when we return. I am excited to return and see everyone I have missed, yet I am not ready to leave a place and culture that I have grown to love so much. It will be easy to return to a lifestyle with hot showers, comfortable beds, and much less flies, but it will be hard to wake up and not greet everyone I see on the street, not constantly be invitedforAtayyah,and to not constantly be treated like a king simply because I look different. I dont think any of us are fully prepared to leave the loving and kind culture of Senegal and return tothe wasteful and indulgent American culture we found ourselves living before this trip.

We are leaving tonight. That small fact does not really seem to have hit any of us yet. For the last couple days our time has been spent at a beautiful beach reflecting on our time together over the last six weeks. Listing our different adventures and jokes makes me realize just how close our group has become in such a short time. I know that we will not stop keeping in touch after this summer.
