Another Hero For Today ............... Samory Touré (1830-1900) of the emergent Mandinka Empire in Guinea/Mali/Sierra Leone and northern Côte d'Ivoire was born in Guinea. As his new empire was taking off, Touré began to forge a new political order and ran up against the French imperialists who were also trying to extend their territories inland from their base in Dakar, Senegal.

The Stone Circles of Senegambia are the largest group of megalithic complexes yet recorded in any region of the world. There are 1,053 Stone circles and a total of 28,931 monoliths. Their quality suggests sophisticated stone working traditions. The stone circles lie in Gambia north of Janjanbureh and in central Senegal. Four separate locations were chosen to represent the complex: - Kerbatch Central River Division (Gambia) - Wassu Central River Division (Gambia) - Sine Ngayène Kaolack (Senegal) - Wanar Kaolack (Senegal)

Situated an hour from Dakar, Senegal, there is an unusual lake that will capture your eyes because of its pink colour. Lake Retba (or Lac Ros as it is known by locals) is a lake that is high in salt content comparable to that of the Dead Sea of the Mediterranean . It's distinct pink colour is caused by the bacteria which is attracted by the lake's salt content. The bacteria produces a red pigment in order to absorb the sunlight which gives the lake its unique colour.
