Katchikali Sacred Crocodile Pond
(3)
Katschi-Kali, the sacred crocodile pond, is one of the tourist attractions in Gambia but lacks infrastructure. It's a sea of ​​interesting things. We conjecture of all kinds, but still do not know why many crocodiles that live in a pond are barely flinching. Although it claims to be sacred, and therefore do not attack, and you must have a lot of hesitation to approach these vermin ... but, you know, still not dead any "foreigner". In Katschi-Kali there is also a large baobab inside which makes a ceremony of initiation or circumcision of boys. The site also links to female fertility rites, so that women who want to become pregnant are washed with the water of that pond to do.

Tanghi

Women and children flock to the beach in Tanghi to help fishermen bring their catch to shore. While waiting for the boats, they sing and dance on the sand, braid each other's hair, and take care of the little ones. Each person is given two or three fish, in many cases it's the only protein the family will have. Gambia sells fish to other countries in Africa. Close to the beach you can see the precarious "industry" of salted and smoked fish.
Of Cultural Interest in Brikama
River Side Nursery School
We found this school wondering around Brikama. We arrived at 12 which is when children leave school, but that didn't hinder their seeing us and following behind the car shouting "TUUUBAAAAAAB". We just got out of the car and we were surrounded by kiddies between the ages of 3 and 5, kissing us, touching us and showing us the school. Inside was its director, Mr. Mustapha Jammeh, who very kindly welcomed us and put some order to all children. And he thanked us for all the material we provided. We sang a lot of songs, and I uploaded this small sample so you can enjoy. If you want to know more, don't hesitate to visit our blog, the Gambia. We found this school while wandering around Brikama.
