This video was taken as we drove through the Grand Yoff market in Dakar. I lived in Grand Yoff for a couple months when I first moved to Dakar in 2002. I had a cute, little bachelorette pad (the only time in my life I’ve ever lived alone) and, appropriately, I had a cat too.

Eight years later, Grand Yoff is still just as busy and packed with people (pop. 150,000) as you can see in the video.
