This year I opted to witness the zombies stroll down the streets of Hamilton, Ontario as opposed to my regular Toronto outing. The ratio of photogs to zombies was much lower than in Toronto, which was great. The constant rain during the walk...not so great.

Headless, No More

The first time I visited Dakar was in September of 2009 and I managed to get a small tour of the city. At the time, they were in the midst of constructing the Monument de la Renaissance Africaine, a 49m tall bronze statue (the tallest statue in Africa apparently). The (now former) president, Abdoulaye Wade, commissioned the statue which ended up costing $27 million to build. In a country with the issues that Senegal is facing, I'm pretty sure that expenditure wasn't greeted with too much enthusiasm.

On my last trip through Dakar, this past month, I managed to get back into the city, and see the monument once more.

Wade is gone and the current government is in a financial crisis.
But hey, look, the statue's finally got a head.

Subject I Know...

Well, I've been back to Senegal enough times this year to warrant a new gallery in the travel section. Oh, and I've created a new gallery for one of my favourite subjects: Gold Mining (both commercial and artisanal). Check them out!

Not quite Tonka

The big kid in me can't get over how much watching these guys work reminds me of playing with Tonka trucks in the sandbox when I was a kid.

Sabodala mining operations pictures have been added.
