Living in Dakar has been a beautiful experience. I have met so many amazing people who I look forward to getting to know more in the coming months. However, as in any place in the world, sometimes I have to interact with people who want more than a friendly conversation. Most days I can laugh it off, but sometimes it can be kind of tiring. The following are the things I tell these men, who insist that we are married.
The attached photo is my host brother doing one of his karate moves. It is a great representation of my mood on the days I am just too tired to deal.
