Goree Island

It is an island that is located across Senegal to Dakar, ideal to enjoy a good swim in the warm sea, stroll along the sandy streets and learn a history of a site that was a key point during the slave trade.

This island of Senegal only measures one kilometer long and wide. Dakar is located in front and to reach it you must cross by ferry, locally called chaloupe.

And children, without mercy, were exchanged for a necklace or a mirror. (más…)
