Visiting the Renaissance Monument of Senegal

When was the lat time you traveled?How often do you travel? These are some fundamental questions to always ask yourself as you live. I get butterflies every time I wander places I have never been. I really love that awesome feeling of being anonymous in a city I’ve never been before. The experience you carry from traveling is better than the long lectures you hear about a place. Africa has got eye catching spots than can make you wish you travel and visit over and over. One of those spots is the “Renaissance monument”. It is a tall bronze statue located on top of one of the twin hills known as “collines de mamelles”,outside Dakar in Senegal. It faces the Atlantic Ocean and was designed by a Senegalese architect called Pierre Goudiaby after an idea presented by the president Abdoulaye Wade. It is the tallest statue in Africa. It was initially designed to commemorate the new Era in Africa or in celebration of the Senegalese Independence day, but finally attracted a lot of revenue to the state as most tourists made it a captivating point of visit. “The Renaissance monument” might have faced several criticism from locals and the international community but also made Senegal prestigious and famous in the eyes of the world. Traveling to areas such as this monuments will give you a lot of memories to write down. The world is a complete book and those who don’t travel only read one chapter of it. Travel is the treasure of time. Make it count
