Hey Christopher, thank you for your Senegal contributions! As you have probably noticed, our Senegal articles are still pretty basic, so the attention is most welcome. One thing to be aware of is that all Wikitravel articles have basically the same section headers ("understand," "see," "do," etc.), so it's best not to change them. Keep up the good work! --Peter Talk 15:25, 10 March 2009 (EDT)
