Sometimes the reasons why we don’t like someone else show that our heart is uglier than the person’s shortcomings.
I have lived in Senegal for slightly over a year now. One of my favourite things about living here is that it is right by the ocean, and it feels like I’m on vacation all year round. There’s something about endless sand and water that gives me joy.
Speaking of vacations, my friend and I were feeling really stressed recently and decided to take a mini vacation, just three days away from the city. We drove two hours to Saly, but it felt like a world away at the Royal Saly Hotel.
Me being serenaded by a local senegalese artist. What the hotel lacked in good food, they made up for in good music and a beautiful view.
We plan to make this a habit and explore all the beauty Senegal has to offer.
I just discovered Rivers & Robots an indie worship band from England. I love the calm sound. Perfect for a day in, writing or just staring out the window, curled up in a chair with a hot cup of tea.
I’m still exploring all their albums, but here’s one of my favourite’s so far.
What new band’s have you discovered?
