I thought I would present some pictures from our trip to Africa in 2012 that fit into the theme for the week.
This was the view from the room where our daughter, then a Peace Corp Volunteer, lived for two years.
The town of Dalaba in Guinea where she served used to be administrative center for the country.This goat, looking pregnant, seems to be guarding this particular property in town.The next couple of pictures are from the mosque in Touba, Senegal.
The following pictures are from Goree Island in Senegal. This was one of the ports of departure for slaves being sent to the Americas.
The first two pictures in the Goree series are of rooms where slaves were housed before being shipped off. The third picture is of the Door of No Return in The House of Slaves, through which the slaves were forced on to the ships bound for the American continent. The fourth picture shows a destroyed section of the fort at Goree that used to house a cannon. Goree Island can be reached by boat from Dakar, the capital of the country.
