Everyone in Dakar is a business man. Everyone is trying to sell you something. Everyone.
From drums to African clothes, from “friendship” to oranges. In Dakar you will be pestered by people who want to take your money off you. For the most part they will at least give you something in return for it, but you do have to watch out for scammers. Like this guy:
He was not very pleased when I took a photo of him instead of giving him money after he had walked down the street trying to tell me that I should remember him from the Hotel.
