Dried chilli's.

We then got to meet a local Gambian family, living simply in their wooden, two-room hut and small plot of land. About a third of the population lives below the international poverty line of US$1.25 a day.

It was great to see some of The Gambia beyond the beaches and hotels.


We drove on to the coast to Paradise Beach, where they had a pretty good buffet spread out for us for a late lunch at about 3pm.

And then went for my first dip in the chilly Atlantic Ocean before retreating to the safety of a sun lounger!

At 4:30pm we packed into the back of the 4WD's again and stopped at Tanji Fishing Village, where they had large huts with fish being smoked.

Tanji reminded me of our visit to the Port de pÍche in Nouakchott, albeit on a much smaller scale.

Kids playing in the colourful wooden fishing boats which we also saw in Saint Louis, Senegal.
