Good morning! I’m celebrating my seventh year in West Africa by taking over the @everydayafrica feed this week with recent work and adventures from around the region and beyond. Here is a snap from one of my favorite spots in my home base of Dakar, Senegal (if not the whole region). The sun sets on Virage Beach on December 31, 2013.

Khady, left, and Ibrahima, right, watch Pape as he prepares “ataya” or tea in Dakar, Senegal. Taking ataya is a tradition in west Africa where friends come together multiple times a day to socialize as one person pours tea from one small glass to another to mix the ingredients and create a foam before drinking.
