  • The smell causes anger. Whoever sees him once does not need it again.

  • The Albert Market was our 3rd market in Gambia. Souvenirs slightly more expensive than Craft Market bakau. Otherwise a good mix of things for locals and tourists. Here you can also go without a guide without getting lost.

  • Good market but they have to give some important on infrastructure
