Senegal – Heart of Teranga
Get to know the heart of Teranga. What is teranga?
Good question! The simplest definition is “hospitality” but it goes much beyond that. It defines an ethic, a cultural value system. It is why Senegalese people are so giving and caring. It is why we might get invited in for a 4 hour lunch and while we are sitting and talking half of the neighborhood might come through the house as well. Nothing is off limits. If I can help, I will find a way.
The best way to learn about teranaga is to go and discover it for yourself. Find a friend. Take some time to try mint ataya – and it is true the third cup is the best – and discover the joy that is teranga.
