Lac Rose, Tania eats a record amount of “Thieb u dienne,” and my first time fainting on a bus
Saturday, I went to Lac Rose, which is this place tourists go to outside of Dakar. As its name suggests, it is a pink lake (due to its ridiculous salt quantity or something related to it) and it’s supposed to be the pinkest this time of year, so we didn’t want to miss that!
Anyway we got there and looked at this pink lake for like a second and remarked about how weird the foam was and how the lake did look pink! Then my friend, Tania was really hungry so we decided to watch Tania put away a ridiculous amount of rice, palm oil, and fish (enough to make it into the title of this post) before we explored the lake. But then, we skipped the lake part and left before we realized we had gone all that way basically just to eat a couple of plates of Senegalese food. But I was feeling really sick and I didn’t really care and was secretly glad that no one was into staying anyway.
I think due to the dust it wasn’t as magnificently pink as we wanted it to be. It just looked dirty (and foamy).
I guess more eventful, I also had my first experience fainting on a crowded Senegalese bus. That was fun. NOT. I’m still in bed, really sick but really bored and for some reason, really craving chocolate and beer.
