Local beer tasting 🍺 🍻

Dakar made an unpleasant impression on us. A large number of banks, stately buildings in the city center, a shameless display of wealth of a small privileged group of society and the vast majority of beggars in their background. It is forbidden to pass by the residence of the President on foot, you can only pass with a car, there are a lot of armed police in the city, a feeling of dictatorship and permissiveness of those in power. People are hungry to the point of exhaustion, many are lying under monuments, whether a dying person is lying or weakened – no one is interested in this.. A very bad, unfriendly atmosphere in the city.
