Made a decision, 決めました
I liked the people in Bissau but the town of Bissau was too uncomfortable to stay longer; no power, no Internet and expensive accommodation.
I thought It would be a good idea to go back to Ziguinchor and take more time to think about my route because I was still unsure whether or not keep going west Africa.
My visa of Bissau was double entry, so I can come back again if I decided.


I found a mini bus going to Ziguinchor at the taxi and mini bus Garage easily. I paid 5000CFA about $10 including my bicycle.
This scrap looking mini bus surprisingly run okay, but I thought it would be broken down anytime.

乗合ミニバスはすぐにガラージ (乗合バス、タクシー乗り場) で捕まった。荷物込みで5000CFA約1000円。ギシギシ今にも分解しそうなボロバス。自転車移動の方がよっぽど楽なような気がする。

I returned to Ziguinchor. It took only 4h.
In this time, I camped at Hotel Ndaary. It was 3500CFA/night about $7 including African shower and WiFi. They didn't actually advertise for camp but I successfully negotiated.

ジガンジョールには4時間で着いた。今回は前回泊まったHotel Ndaaryで何とかお願いしてキャンプさせてもらった。3500CFA 約600円。
実は前回泊まった翌日に近くの安宿 Casa Frequeというロンプラ掲載のキャンプ可ホテルに移動していたのだけれど、スタッフがHotel Ndaaryの方が断然良かったし、フリースペースがかなりリラックスできるので、こっちでキャンプさせてもらった。

Pelicans and a bird I've never seen walk around the back yard of this hotel.


I have been thinking over and over again how I should make the plan for couple of days.
I didn't expect how I would love this region.


Then finally, I decided....

I will fry to east Africa.

The biggest reason was where I will finish. If I intend to keep going west, I could go till Togo or Benin. However, there would be not good place to finish such as a cape.

Since I have a limited budget after traveling over two years, I cannot keep traveling if I fly from Togo or Benin to east Africa; visas in west Africa are extremely expensive.


I thought I should spend my money for safari or other attractions in east Africa rather than stupid visas in west Africa.


Repentance is usual for journey. I can probably have another good time in east. I shifted my motivation to east Africa and started preparing going back to Dakar.


I loved Senegal and really loved people here.
I met many nice people. This man worked at a souvenir shop.

He was not typical guy working tourist industry; greedy for money.
He was just friendly and liked hanging out with strangers. There were many people same way in this region.


A woman at a sandwich shop and a guy at a cafe stall, those all made my good memory.
I was getting a bit popular as a Japanese cyclist who stayed in Ziguinchor. Its sad to leave. I am for sure coming back to Senegal again.
