So, I had to settle for a hostel located 15 minutes away from the airport which meant I was in the middle of nowhere. My trip to Dakar was frustrating because I spent the majority of my time in the hotel. I wasn't near anything worth mentioning and I was uncomfortable travelling solo to the center of town (especially after my airport incidence). In the end, though, the hostel manager arranged for me to go on a tour with one of his workers and we spent about five hours travelling throughout the city. Dakar is a seaside resort but I didn't see that...but I don't think I would have wanted to know. Walking through the medina, university and Independence Square was much more exciting.
I plan to return one day and NOT stay in my hotel room. Senegal...
