We finally left the desert and found ourselves in West Africa. A couple of days wandering St Louis du Senegal provided a welcome conclusion to sandy cycling, with crumbling French buildings covered by cascades of flowers, and refreshingly cold and cheap beers! We then kept up a new found trend of cycling a relaxing 20km a day instead of 100+ and spent a few days camping near the Langue de Barbarie national park.

The view of the old town from the Faidherbe bridge, which was designed by Gustav Eiffel and somehow shipped to St Louis during French colonial times.
If you ever wondered where discarded charity shop clothes end up… It was difficult to leave this cavernous shed of wonders without an entire new wardrobe.
Back in the land of beer!
