Teranga. Hospitality. This Wolof word is the essence of West Africa. West Africa boasts some of the most original cultures remaining in the world, and their homes are always open to visitors. We have learned to love the region and its people, and we hope that through our journeys that we can share what we have found with you too.
What will you find in West Africa? Rhythmic pounding of women preparing grain for tonight's dinner. Youngsters having fun on a cart pulled by braying donkeys. The family gathered in the afternoon shade for three rounds of traditional Arab tea. Sitting under a baobab tree philosophizing with village elders.
