Sunset out on the Delta, Senegal

with one comment


This was the view as I was along for the ride as Molly Melching, CEO of Tostan NGO and Sanjit Bunker Roy of the Barefoot College of Engineers in India visited the last of the day of several small villages in Senegal to discover which 5 villages would be the best to serve as models for the implementation of solar energy. I was recording the conversation during the town hall meeting (a circle of chairs under a beautiful tree.) Just as the conversation turned to the cost of batteries, the battery in my mp3 recorder finally gave out. A villager and I both noticed the sunset and he escorted me out to a good location. In my opinion I was about 5 minutes late for the fiery red sun we both saw from the meeting circle and the ideal baobab tree silhouette still evades me. Senegal. December 25, 2008.

  1. How exciting about the implementation of solar energy! I wonder why this wasn’t done years old.
