Used clothing is a hot commodity here. Old t-shirts and pants from the States are sold everywhere, and I’d say about half of the people walking the streets on any given day are wearing them.
I’m always keeping my eye out for t-shirts with names of U.S. states, towns, teams or groups I know, mostly waiting for the day when I find someone wearing a team jersey from Bethlehem, N.Y., my hometown.
At the market in Nioro this morning, I caught sight of a guy wearing a shirt from Houston’s Channel 11 News! KHOU: Now you know your Spirit of Texas slogan is reaching the masses in central Senegal.
