An amus­ing glance at Dakar, its dif­fer­ent mon­u­ments and cos­mopoli­tan quar­ters, result of the numer­ous colo­nial­is­tic peri­ods that built the city. »I regard­ed the dif­fer­ences direct­ly around me and I found it very amus­ing that this city shows the trace of the var­i­ous colo­nial­is­tic set­tle­ments. For exam­ple I found it very funny that there is a cathe­dral in a Sudanese style, a cham­ber of com­merce look­ing like a the­atre but a the­atre that looks like a block of coun­cil flats: all those esthet­i­cal con­trasts made me amuse.«
