Our first stop was at the National Museum, then we drove through the city with a long stop at the busy marketplace. Continuing we our drive, we stopped at Arch 22 for photos then visited the town of Serre-Kunda. It was fun to watch the tie-dying skills of the locals and many of us purchased the colorful fabrics. In Bakau, we stopped for liquid refreshments, then headed to the Tourist Market to sharpen our negotiating skills. Lastly, we stopped at Katchically Crocodile Pool. I see many crocs here in Florida so it wasn't a big thing for me but the guided tour was interesting.
