We aim to make a true connection between people. Like between Sabina and her husband (from The Netherlands) and Bakary at Kololi, The Gambia. We love to see how that works out.
Travelling to The Gambia for the first time, Sabina makes an effort to experience as much as possible. After reading a travel blog about eating together with locals, she contacts ResiRest. We match her and her husband with Bakary and his family, since they are all very enthousiastic people.
Sabina tells us what happens the day they meet Bakary. First of all, Bakary turns up a bit late… welcome to The Gambia 😉 He makes up for this though. “We had a fantastic day. Bakary is a wonderful man. We saw a lot, amazing impressions.”
Together with the locals, Sabina prepares Benachin. This is a traditional dish, very tasty. And, of course, they eat it together the Gambian way. All from one large plate that is. “The family was very friendly and hospitable, and the food delicious.”
Not only Sabina and her husband had a good time. Bakary loved having over these guests. “I am proud they had a nice time. It was a pleasure showing them around my neighborhood.”
Sabina collected many gifts for children, and brought it with her to the compound of Bakary. “The kids were very pleased with the attention and the gifts. It was a fine day for all of us”.
