Jean Batten: aviatrix, explorer and glamour queen. « the ...
To the north I could see the blurred gleam of the lighthouse at Dakar sending its friendly beam out into the night. I switched off the navigation lights, for the lighted cabin seemed to make the darkness outside more intense as I peered vainly through the windows trying to distinguish the horizon. “It must get light soon,” I thought, glancing at the clock, to realize that it was only twenty minutes since I had left Thies.” (Jean Batten – solo round the world aviatrix 1909 -1982) I’ve often wondered what drives a person like Jean Batten to explore beyond the norm: to set records that [suite...]

There are many French words that I learned in Senegal because I am constantly speaking in and listening to French.

Dakar Doings: it's raining men
I was visiting a friend in downtown Dakar. We were sitting around the house and in typical Senegalses fashion a constant stream of people came in and out the houses to hang out or just say hello (it’s really nice).

While this sounds benign, it is actually quite disgusting and has many sexual connotations. A hand tickle is a light scratch on the inside of the palm. It is used to indicate that you have a [suite...]
