Exploring Marché aux Poissons

Last weekend Maija (another girl on the Wells program) and I went on an adventure to the fish market just south of the university.  While we were walking around we met a really nice guy named Waly who hooked us up with a fisherman who then gave us a tour in his boat around the local coastline.  It was super cool and we ended up going for a dip in the sea!  Once we got back to the market we stayed and chatted with Waly for a while and he cooked us some flying fish for lunch!  All in all it was a great weekend!  There were a few interesting situations that I may not have entered into had I been in the US but we ended up just going with the flow and things worked out great!  I ended up learning a lot about the type of work that goes on around the fishing industry and got to see a bunch of cool species of fish!
