December 1989: West Africa

A trip to visit our friend Jo, who was working as a researcher at the Medical Research Council in Fajara, The Gambia. Jo took us up country in a Land Rover. We had memorable stops at the huge market in Farafenni, a cross-roads on the Trans-Gambia Highway, and at Basse. We also took our own adventure, visiting Dakar, Senegal, and Bamako, Mali, in search of West African music and culture.
