Photographer's Note

I like going to the local markets but I am quite immune to buy any souvenirs, so-called dust collectors. But there is one exception, almost always I bring home the tablecloths. Sometimes they are in fact not tablecloths but tissues for the sarong or longyi that I use as tablecloths. Today it is sunny day so we have had lunch in the garden. I have taken the cloth from the wardrobe - I noticed it is from Senegal. It has evoked the memories of West Africa.

When I posted the photos from Himba village there was some feeling that it was a bit artificial, the place for tourists, all for show. Here on this market, there were thousands of animals - (sheep, goats), vendors probably from different part of Senegal and neighbouring countries and the lonely old lady with the camera (there were other people from the group also, 13 of them, but they were not so active).

I couldn't find anything in Google about this market. It was near Kaolack.
I liked the dark blue robes of Tuaregs. See Workshop.
