My house, The kid is peeking in my front door that opens to the courtyard.
This is the courtyard of my home, where they pray and eat on the floor. My room is the open door on the left. The sairs go up to the rooftop terrace. As you can see on the top, there is a tree that grows up through the tile floor in the courtyard.

A woman wearing a bubu and peigne, the traditional dress of Senegal, with traditional fabric. Most women wear this instead of western clothes because if its functionality and cool fabric. I just went to the tailor to get one made for Korite.
