The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Rock Out in Dakar


5. An Oddball Day
Witness witch-doctoring at the source in Yoff — a fishing village located a short drive up the coast from Dakar — where the distressed from all over the region arrive to be cured by local faith healers in grand, public ceremonies. The animal sacrifices are not for the faint of heart. Hire a taxi and its driver for the return journey, and make time for the excellent beaches nearby.
