Mosquee de la Divinite, Dakar, Senegal

This photo was taken during an evening walk in Dakar, Senegal, along the Corniche. The Corniche is a lovely boulevard that runs along the city’s western coast, overlooking the Atlantic ocean. The building is the Mosquee de la Divinite, one of the most beautiful mosques in Dakar and a striking feature against the backdrop the sea. The photo is especially significant because it was taken in August during Ramadan, the Islamic holy month. It was a great intercultural faith lesson, as we saw many Muslims stocking up for nightly feasts and being vigilant about observing the five-times-a-day calls to prayer.
