Discovered thanks to a friend who was living there, he was quickly enamoured by the sunny climate and the incomparable quality of the Senegalese welcome. Initially housed in a residents comprising villas of standing, he explored the country thanks to the knowledge of an attentive and reliable taxi driver. Then later by means of a Land Cruiser HDJ 105 which he purchased there, he crossed the length and breadth of the country accompanied by his now friend, Moustafa Dieng. With very little equipment, but jointly motivated by the idea of living a true adventure, they crossed the Malian borders for a journey of 28 days which would see them patrol more than 6000 kms on laterite tracks. After having stayed there seven or eight times, the recomposition of his family and the young age of his last two children temporarily separated him from the country of the Teranga, not being able to find a project capable of reconciling the needs of each.
