Spend a few hours exploring Senegal's art museums. These are excellent spots to explore, especially on unpleasant days.
If the sun is shining during your stay, try some of the local water activities. Scuba diving and boating are both popular here.
Discover the true heart of the Senegal food culture by exploring the regional cafés. You will find that lamb and pea are regularly used components in many local meals. Order a couple of the popular menu items such as thieboudienne (fish, rice and tomato sauce) and yassa (spicy, marinated fish/chicken). But your meal is not really finished until you have tried banana fritters, a common dessert in these parts. If you feel like something non-alcoholic, fresh juice might be perfect.
Authentic traveling is so much more than just the scenery, it's also about the poetry, song and story of a region. Your stay in Senegal will become infinitely richer if you make the effort to practice some handy phrases and sayings in French. "Je viens de..." is the French way to say "I come from..." And, for "What's your name?", you can use "Comment est-ce que vous vous appelez ?" Why don't you give it a go!
As the sun sets on your adventures, spend your last West African francs on last-minute mementos and say Au revoir / À bientôt to the interesting characters you've met and the great places you've seen.
