Dreaming of Europe: the last young man left in a Senegalese villageLife is lonely and humiliating for Goundo Wandianga, 21, whose friends and twin brother have all gone to seek their fortunes
The article isn’t particularly illuminating, but it also doesn’t yank your chain too badly to try to get you to believe that all these young men are leaving Senegal because there is some sort of temporary crisis going on there from which the young men (but not the women or children or elderly) need refuge.
I tried looking up the news from Senegal
to see if there was some sort of terrible disaster enfolding there that I hadn’t heard about, but most of the recent news from Senegal concerned how well
the national soccer team is playing.
In reality, they go to Europe because they are looking forward to an adventure.
It’s perfectly understandable, but it doesn’t mean you have to let them in.
