The Gambia - 4/1/13

My first full day in the country so I thought it'll be best to get a guide. His name was Lamin, like everyone in Gambia, but was very good, cheap and on time. We went to Marakissa just north of Brikama. We went by bush taxi which I didn't know leave their destination when they are full, so a bit of waiting. Anyway about 5 hours was spent in the area having lunch at the camp, and getting back to Footsteps by mid afternoon.
