Banjul – arrival

Shaun has arrived safely in Banjul after a good flight and into hot and sunny weather, certainly a welcome break from the rain back at home.

He has managed to find accommodation with a local family and in true vagabond style, now shares a room with Ishmail and is sleeping on a very thin mattress directly on a concrete floor! He is managing to keep the mosquitoes at bay for the time being.

Ishmail has proved invaluable and has shown Shaun around, helping him with the visas and introducing him to Sona Jobarteh… Shaun met Sona in London and i can imagine he was a little ‘star struck’ as he sat having lunch with her at her family home.

An excellent start to an amazing adventure!
