Our visit to the artisanal fishing port of Mbour starts at the area where artisanal handmade fishing boats called pirogues, are made and represent all the different kinds of fishing boats traditionally used.
We will also visit the area for women of the market who transform fresh fish products into dried products to sell.
Walk with me in the crowd of fishermen, fish sellers, buyers and all those who are present to seize the many job opportunities offered by the port.
Join me on this amazing look at the traditions and trades of Mbour, Senegal

Wow! Such an amazing place and harbor. So many boats and so many people! Our guide did a good job of managing it all and answering our questions. I had a million more questions, but many were about lifestyle, education system, trade w other cities, countries. He was a bit hard to understand, but I don't have a good ear for other languages.
Many thanks to Kate for getting me organized before my first "trip".
