Arch 22 in Banjul (Dennis Duck Jr)
After breakfast on board we travel by bus to the ferry and then take the ferry acrossed the river to Jangjanbureh, formerly called Georgetown, We explore Jangjanbureh on foot seeing the local sights, governers house and the local market before taking the ferry back across the river and boarding our bus to Lamin Koto, where we visit a local school that the cruise line supports and is building them a new building, the childern sing for us and let us visit them in their classrooms, from here we travel by bus to Wassu to see the mysterious stones circles believed to be a burial ground thousands of years ago. We return to the ship and set sail to Kaur, where we dock and go ashore to take a walk in the villiage, we see the local women working the Rice fields and the local childern join us and follow us on our walk, we return to the ship and spend the night docked here. We had a wonderful dinner on board for the Captians night.
