When you fly into Dakar, the first thing you see is this ginormous statue, The African Renaissance Monument. It is huge and we definitely plan to climb to the top before we leave.
We met with the Minister of Culture, Racine Senghor, a great connection through Kelly's friend Habib.  We talked about Senegalese literature and he shepherded the process for our film permit which we received gratuit.  Per the blogs, a film permit isn't necessary, but good thing we got it, because day 1 of filming and folks are asking.

Senegal is not a famous country and I am sure that not all familiar with them. But if you are planning to travel the world, it is s must that you visit this country at least once. You are up there for a mission, but I am glad to know that you spent your free time looking for beautiful places in the country. I am glad you saw The African Renaissance Monument. I am hoping you were able to climb the top of it!

I read that Senegal is best known for its french colonial heritage. Where did you see the prominence of French? Is it in their culture or food? Just like Pondicherry, do they have French colony as well?
