Introduction to Senegal

We have arrived!!!!

Where do I begin? The plane ride from Washington Dulles was horrible.   The turbulence lasted for almost 20 minutes and that left me and the kids and the rest of passenger’s sick to our stomach.  Every bathroom occupied by someone who was sick.   The cabin crew wore mask and gloves while everyone was holding a puck bag.  We were so happy to get off the plane lol

Once we got off the plane we went straight to customs for our visa’s.  This process was so easy they didn’t ask for why we are here, nothing about custody or our living arrangements. They printed our bio-metric visa and place it on our passport.

Anyway after the visa we went for our bags,  BEWARE the airport staff in the yellow vest are going to ask to help you with your bags,  DON’T LET THEM.  They prey on newcomers and then hold your bags hostage till you give them money. And then ask for 10 000 cfa which is a lot for Dakar. So the moral of the story is carry and push your own bags.

  1. Glad to hear you have arrived safely, although I’m sorry the flight was so awful. Great beach photo – being close to a ‘tropical’ beach is one of the greatest things about living in The Gambia.

  2. Hello, I am an American mom planning to move to Senegal too! I have 4 beautiful kids, all very young though, 8 mos., 2 yrs., 8 yrs., and 13 yrs. Three of the younger children live in Senegal with their father and I am planning to join them TODAY for the exact same reason. I would love to meet up with you upon my arrival to make connections. I hope to speak with you soon.
