Shaun has arrived in Banjul!

20th January and Shaun lands safely in Banjul. Apparently it’s hot and sunny!. He has managed to find accommodation with a local family and in true vagabonding style is sleeping in a small room on a very thin mattress directly on a concrete floor, he also has the pleasure of sharing this with a local lad called Ishmail!
Ishmail has proved invaluable however and has helped Shaun get the visas he needs and also arranged for him to meet Sona Jobarteh… Shaun met Sona in England and was no doubt slightly ‘star struck’ as he sat and had some lunch with her.
Great start to an amazing adventure
