Life in Senegal

In September of 2018 I left on a life changing journey. I served as an agroforestry volunteer with the Peace Corps in Senegal. My rural village Koulari of 500 people became a second home. I tried new foods, experienced new customs, and began to understand the local languages. Unfortunately all Peace Corps volunteers were evacuated from their posts and my time in Senegal was cut short. Here you can find all the blog posts I wrote about my time in Senegal in chronological order, enjoy:
