As some of you know, I'm leaving for Senegal in 2018 for my last couple of decades (hopefully ;-) to work and retire the day when I'm only strong enough to play guitar but not to work hard anymore....
I have been there several times in the last 2 years for immigration preparation, and every time a friend here in Switzerland asked if he could come along for a couple of weeks saying "I like to go to Africa, but I've never been there, and you know the way around, do you mind me to come along ?"
Since these people are good friends, I of course didn't mind, after all they, like myself, don't have too much cash on hand, and 500$ for a two-week stay is enough (no hotel has to be paid).
Now, my friend and business partner Aliou was laughing when I informed him, and he said: "Hey, if you carry on like that bringing people down each time you come, we might one day have enough contacts and PUB to put up a guest house on your land on the beach !"
"Well, I thought we put our office and my apartment on the second floor of that house ;-)"
"Hm....might just extend the land and put up a second house. Business catches on."
"Sure. Two houses. Don't get excited LOL"
Anyway, I just wanted to inform you that there's really some interest here to discover at least a tiny part of Africa. Who knows when the first Americans will show up on tourism - I mean the ones that don't work for World Vision or another so-called NGO that has the primary purpose to feed itself ;-)
So - whenever you're interested - drop me a note. You know that you're welcome. And who knows if there might result some little business ? Possibilities are there.
