Independence Day - Thursday 18 February
Breakfast was very colourful as a large group from Senegal is staying at the hotel, having come for the Independence celebrations. All the ladies looked beautiful in their best outfits, it was a delight to see them. The group has taken over some of the villas at the far end of the hotel complex, which works very well - we see them at meals and later in the evening if there is any entertainment, but they do not seem to want to use the pool area and do not use the corridors in the main hotel building where we have our rooms.
Just family visits today, as schools are closed on Gambian Independence Day. Over the last two days, we have seen 36 students - not bad......More to follow.....
