    Only go outside when theres movement. Be sympathetic. Avoid empty places and the night like the plague. Also walk out with only the absolute necessary you need. Go out with your cheapest clothes.

    Senegal is about as safe as a European country, and much safer than America.

      I watched a documentary about immigrants in Norway last night and one of them was from Senegal and kep committing crimes. He was shitting himself at the idea of being sent there and said he can't go there no matter what. Super safe though same as Europe, right

        Not him but Dakar is safe enough (not Euro tier obviously). You could do a lot worse by West African standards.

          This is actually true; in Cap Skirring I laughed every time I saw geriatric French women walking hand in hand with their Senegalese boy toys.

    I've been to Dakar, there are white people everywhere. For French expats, it's basically what Mexico City is for Americans. Hustlers will try to scam you, but that's the extent of the sketchiness. You're not the main character of a film; nobody will give a fuck about you and your Indiana Jones LARP fantasies about being the first white person an African has ever seen are a product of your own ego, and are not the fault of the Senegalese.
    Dakar has good nightlife/live music and decent seafood, but otherwise there's nothing very interesting there.

    Actually, there is one life-threatening danger in Dakar: There are no crosswalks across the highways which divide the city, people drive like typical Africans, and if you're out at night many cars don't have headlights. Worst urban planning I've ever seen, and I've been to some real shitholes.

    What kind of work requires you to be sent to another country, but takes less than 2 days to do?

        I'm guessing you already told them how illogical this is, but they want to send you there anyway?

          Maybe he's a boomer and did this before Zoom actually made that a viable option

          You really don't understand how businesses work do you. When you're talking about dealings worth millions or billions, thousands is literally irrelevant in cost, if it gives even a 1% better performance it is economically worth it, and meeting in person makes a much bigger difference than 1%

      Maybe inspect some local mines or factories.

    If you wanna waste your opportunity to try something new, by all means, go ahead. Alternatively go out to eat, do some sight seeing etc. Might as well enjoy yourself whilst there

    I heard that Senegalese seafood is worldclass tier. Lots of peanut based stuff as well on account of French imperialists turning half of the country into a peanut plantation back in the day.

      I wouldn't say it's world-class but it's decent. Locally, most fishermen use static gill-nets to catch fish, which means the fish could have been dead for days before it makes it to your plate, hardly fresh. Shellfish is usually fresher; you can get a big crab or bucket of tiger prawns grilled for you right on the beach for like $4. I've literally never seen a Senegalese eat seafood other than in a thieboudienne dish; pic related.

    Since this is an Africa thread, does anyone have any travel experience in Africa, particularly in Cape Town (pic related)? Working there for six months, and I don’t know much about the place, other than there’s a lot of beaches, wine, and very beautiful women (and men, if that floats your boat); what else might there be to do that’s not just for tourists, especially if my pale and homely English friends visit and would like to be entertained? Also I can speak some Dutch; would that help with Afrikaans?
