Visiting Marie’s Apartment

Marie, who helps us to clean, cook, and take care of our son in our apartment, invited us to her apartment for the first time. I have visited a Senegalese family in a rural area and in downtown Dakar, however, this was the first time to visit a Senegalese home in the suburb of Dakar. It was fun to meet and talk to her family members and see another way of living. Marie told me later that lots of people saw me walking around the neighborhood out of curiosity and that she became popular among her neighbors by being asked if that foreigner (me) was her boss.
