The Gambia

Dried fish lays scattered across bright blue plastics, vibrant oranges and reds fill dusty brown canvas sacks, all staked up and surrounded by a confusion of exotic scents.

Serekunda promises to be every bit as hectic as one might expect form The Gambia’s largest covered market. Loosely covered, at a push. Dried fish lays scattered across bright blue plastics, vibrant oranges and reds fill dusty brown canvas sacks, all stacked up and surrounded by a confusion of exotic scents. Sewing machines tap tap tap all day as vast lengths of multicoloured fabrics are joined together to create vivid masterpieces. Smoke fills the dusky alleyways, incense smoke burning at every corner for religious gatherings hidden behind closed doors. We catch a glimpse of two score men praying and bowing, dense shafts of smokes billowing through the air, chants emanating through the fray. We’re spotted observing and the makeshift corrugated door is slammed shut. (tbc)
