With the weather turning and the dark nights drawing closer and closer, it was time for a holiday. So off to The Gambia I went. If you fancy a sunny, different, smiley and happy holiday, Gambia is the place to go.
My holidays are always like a “bus man’s holiday” dragging my poor girlfriend along with me I always plan a little meat related trip. When you say Gambia and meat it’s a little different to Australia and meat or the USA and meat. So after a quick thumb through the Rough Guide, Albert Market in the capital Banjul was the place to check out.
We found a guide and asked him to take us to the meat market, so off we headed through little lanes turning left and right via great spice and fish stalls. We finally got to butchers’ row. It was a buzzing place with lots of shouting and cutting. I got behind the block and to the butchers’ amazement showed off a little bit of skill and also had a great little chat about the trade.
As you can see I met the coolest butcher ever the guy in his shades. I’m thinking it’s the way forward so watch out !
If you are ever in Banjul pop by the Albert Market and have a butchers.
