Starting a new term with the rainy season in Dakar

Pierre is currently on fieldwork in Dakar, in the midst of the rainy season. The ambient air is hot and humid, and sporadic flooding can make daily life challenging. Fresher air is giving some rest only early in the morning. This soothing moment offers beautiful sunrises playing with clouds and birds’ songs coming from secret nests hidden in concrete walls. Time stops before the hectic day starts.

We wish you a good and fulfilling new academic year!
