We went along to the Senegalese party, which was held in the marquee on Plaza de Kuwait on the 11th of December. It was packed. There was live music – some of the ethnic instruments used were amazing! There were also stalls selling all kinds of Senegalese handicraft; everything from paintings, carved figures and traditional clothing to samples of Senegalese sweetmeats etc.
It was sad to see that no mention of the fiesta made the provincial press, other than agenda notes. In other words there was no follow up press.
We don’t have room here for all the photos that we took, but we will post them in full colour on the website, together with this article, where they can be better appreciated. How quickly we forget that these young immigrants dropped everything that they were doing to clean the town up immediately after the big flood.
