Hello friends! I am Jordan, but in Senegal they have decided to bestow upon me the name “Amadou“. I live in Portland, Or., USA. I first visited Senegal in 2005 to visit my sister who was doing research on Gorée Island for Yale University’s archaeology program. My sister, who has since moved back to the United States was considerate enough to have married a Senegalese man, fortunately leaving me with a great Senegalese family and excuse to return to Senegal every couple of years. I enjoy sharing attaya among friends, eating ceebu jën with my bare hands (the right hand only of course) & kicking back with a plastic baggy of slushy bissap and some fresh beignet. I also enjoy being able to do all my shopping from the backseat of a taxi cab.
