    I have been to Casamance. What a beautiful village. Although I was not there long enough to witness the inner culture, it was one of the most welcoming. peaceful places I have been in Senegal. It practices idigenous spirituality, not highly influenced by Islam. I like that. It is lush with greenary with tons of Mango tries and rice farms. Right now there is roomers of fighting a few miles away in Guinea Bissau, plus some factions in Casamance want to seperate from the whole of Senegal. When I was there I felt safe and comfortable, but unfortunately in Afraka things can change drastically. Let us pray for Afraka.
