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 Almadies, please.”

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

Me learning and using more Wolof.

A Senegalese fruit-of-the-month subscription.

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

More musoor. Headwraps for everyone in 2019! Bigger. Better. Bolder.

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

The return of Fanta Cocktail. Please.

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.

A Kayoong rug in every home! Okay fine. I’ll settle for just a basket in every living room.

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

Improved recycling options. Ciprovis and Recuplast are launching great initiatives. Keep it up. And bring more!

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

Fish tacos and an ocean view.

Runner-friendly paths. No massive holes or gaps, no car exhaust or zooming buses… Maybe even a water fountain somewhere along the way.

The opening of Dakar Academy West in Mamelles!

Aroma Café cinnamon rolls, available every day of the week.

Niokobokk Surf Hotel to decide they want to open a little shop to sell their gorgeous, locally sourced decor items that I have been droooooling over on their feed.

Online ordering for Marché Sandaga and Marché Soumbedioune. 😂
