Together with my Dutch-Senegalese son Noah Saliou I made a road trip from Amsterdam to Dakar – in a beautiful Mercedes classic, in the opposite direction of the migration flow.
In many cities along the way, we stayed with Senegalese family and friends. Some join us for parts of the journey, or put parcels in the car to be taken home. Others share their stories about longing, fatherland and being separated from their beloved ones.
TOUKI means Journey in Wolof (Senegalese language).
