Fresh coconuts abound on pushcarts around town. But I’d like to see someone get into the coconut delivery business. “Hello? Four coconuts nan mandi for Mermoz, please.”

More (fun!) businesses coming into that little section of Point E that Minibap, CityDia, La Boucherie Nouvelle and Auchan have claimed.

A monthly artisan market, like a cross between the Dakar Farmers Market and the various Christmas markets.

Me learning and using more Wolof.

Fewer water shortages due to problems at the Keur Momar Sarr plant.

Beer-Sheba beef, pork, chickens and sausages available in Dakar grocery stores. I’d settle for just the sausages. And the beef.

More musoor. Headwraps for everyone in 2017! Bigger. Better. Bolder.

Cory Slater playing live at venues around Dakar.

The return of Fanta Cocktail. Please.

Smartbook Senegal as an app for my phone. Done!

Continued solidarity (not ‘tolerance’) among religions. It is a privilege to be invited to share in Muslim celebrations and also to be welcomed to share our Christian celebrations with our neighbors. Senegal really sets the standard for hospitality in this way.


Fritos Scoops and Good Earth Sweet & Spicy herbal tea available on a regular basis.

Rapid Diagnostic Tests for malaria back in stock in pharmacies.

A Senegalese fruit-of-the-month subscription.

A library stocked with French and English books for adults and children, story hour, AC, wifi, coffee shop… #dreambig

More bok choy, Brussels sprouts, kale and other amazing green stuff. (Thanks Taaru Askan!)

Online ordering for Marché Sandaga and Marché Soumbedioune. 😂
