Google recently updated to include a lot more detail in four african countries’ maps – Senegal included. Diene and I had so much fun finding his hometown, Yayeme (spelled Yayem on the map). How fun to be able to see the road I walked from Fimela, where the bus would drop me off, to Yayeme, where I would arrive to the sunny faces of friends.
I’ve embedded the map below for you to play around with. Why not try and find Samba Dia, where the I found myself in the market during this story. Here’s a hint: its walking distance from Yayeme.
For fun, I’ve pasted the map of Madison, Diene’s adopted home. Just the colors alone will tell you – he left a lot of trees to come to a lot of concrete.
Grateful for google maps!
