Title: The flight back home (Dakar to St Louis, Senegal)

16:02.5N 016:27.5W

The following two days, while living in a close-by hotel, a replacement alternator was installed by the very competent A&P with
our assistance, and we were ready
to continue our homeward journey.

After refuelling in the late afternoon
of the second day, we decided to move on to Saint Louis, just 45 minutes away on the
extreme northwest side of
Senegal, the place where the early "Aeropostale" pioneers landed and took off on their first
transatlantic flights to
and from South America.

in between flights to- or from South America.
