Gorée Island

By far the largest tourist attraction in Dakar is a little island named Île de Gorée, a former French fortress and slave port turned tourist trap-cum air market. It is sited about a mile from the mouth of the old Dakar port, and is reached by an inexpensive ferry.

Since we were trapped in Dakar for two weeks anyway, a Guinean PCV on med evac and I decided to go see what all the fuss was about. These are the photos that I took during our trip.
