Dakar

From 6 till 17 dec. 2009 I was in Dakar (Senegal) for doing a job (although I am retired).
On a free saterday I visited the island of Gorée, about ten km of the front of the harbour of Dakar.
I am always and everywhere looking for traces of the Napoleontic area.
In Dakar itself I found nothing. But I did on this island!
I visited a garden with was called after a French biologican of the Napoleontic area. His name was Michel Adanson (1727 - 1806).
His engraved portrait and the currency of his live were hanging on the wall.
It was good readable.
