African Sunrises and Sunsets

Traveling offers many opportunities to see beautiful sunrises and sunsets.  In this blog post, I’d like to share my photos taken in Morocco and Senegal.  These are all my original photos, and my property.  Please do not steal them.

Sunset in Essaouira, Morocco

Essaouira is a seaside community in Morocco, facing onto the Atlantic Ocean. It offers beautiful views of the ocean, and also of sunsets.  I was there for Funoon Dance Camp, which was organized by my friend Nawarra.

Sunrises in Dakar, Senegal

These two photos were both taken at sunrise (approximately 7:30 a.m.) in November, 2017, from the Pullman Hotel in Dakar, Senegal.

In case you’re wondering why I was in Senegal for a month, I was there as part of the IBM Corporate Service Corps.   You can read more about that here: http://roaming-jewel.com/2017/10/17/ibmcsc/

A Nod to Egypt

I’ve taken so many photos of sunrises and sunsets in Egypt, that I’ve given Egypt its own page.  However, I wanted to include at least one photo of Egypt on this page since, after all, Egypt is in Africa! Here’s one I took in 2016, and if you’d like to see more, follow this link to my Egypt page!

  1. Great photos! I especially love the ones of Egypt and the pyramids. I was at the festival the same time as you and actually attended one of Morocco’s workshops! It was such a fun festival.

    1. Thanks for the comment! Back in its early years, Ahlan wa Sahlan was a really great festival. Over time, it got so big that I lost interest in going, but I’m glad I went as many times as I did. I went in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2008.
