I want this in our house in the village….

“I re-built the gazebo in the garden, installed hammock hooks and Malian hammocks, and thatched the roof. After some weeks of searching, I found a man who came with a lorry load of grass from the Gambia, leapt on the roof and sewed it all together. On Friday nights I get out my film projector and we watch movies projected on the wall. There’s no cinema in Dakar so we have to make our own fun.
