We cross the border to The Gambia – as swift and easy as the last one – and reach Banjul in the afternoon. Banjul is the country’s small capital, with a population of only half million. We continue some ten or so kilometers further south to Bakau – a suburb of the capital. There, Cheikh – a man we met a few days earlier in Senegal – has put us in contact with a friend of him: Commissioner Jallow of the Gambia Police Force. Jallow lives in Mile Seven, a residential area residing almost none else than military and police officers. We get to camp behind Jallow’s house, and stay for four nights – get a lot done (e.g. visa to Nigeria) and enjoy good times with Jallow, his family and his neighbors.
