How is your study abroad experience coming along ?
Find out about our student this semester. « Hey y’all, my name is Miranda and I’m a junior at Duke University. One of the best aspects of Senegal so far has been my host sister, Ndeyla...in the span of a few short weeks, we’ve quickly become thick as thieves! Yesterday, she took me to Lac Rose to explore for the day, a pink-tinted lake about an hour outside of Dakar. It was just the two of us, which made it much more of an adventure as we boated on the lake, visited the camels, saw the nearby beaches, and even hiked (and got lost many times!) through the sand dunes. At the end of the day, we ended up losing our driver, so we had to walk a couple of kilometers to the nearest bus stop, take a bus to the nearest city with a taxi spot, then take a series of buses and taxis back to Dakar. The hour-long commute quickly became three-hours, but overall, it was just another one of the incredible and challenging adventures I’ve had in Senegal so far (and something that has definitely brought my new sister and I closer!). À la prochaine! »
