Independence Day

I had a close encounter with the newly elected president on Senegal’s Independence Day. Macky Sall sped past me on his way to Place de L’indépendance for the celebrations.

Place de L’indépendance was packed with people watching the military parades, pomp and ceremony.

There was a diverse array of uniforms.

Senegal must spend a lot of money on different types of uniforms.

It was good to see females in the armed forces.

These guys had the best uniforms though.
