Dakar New York Axis (called DNA) opened last week and is a very welcome addition to the shopping options in Dakar. In addition to American food and candy items, they also have a large selection of American OTC medications, toiletries, health products, gifts & decorations, educational books, school supplies, house and cooking supplies, classroom decor… And a new shipment of back-to-school supplies is on the way, along with baby supplies, clothing and more. (Thanks for the photos, D.!)
If you haven’t been yet, head that way on Wednesday. They will be opening their US-style coffeeshop (free wifi, y’all). See you there!
DNA is in Liberté 6, on the same side of the road as the Matforce Hyundai dealership, about 100 meters away.

I happened upon the shop yesterday… The prices were pretty good I thought.
Are there that many more Americans in Dakar than in Budapest? It’s crazy that there are so many more American products there than here!
After the Almadies American store experience, I thought this was a bit empty. But they said they were receiving stock soon. Will try it again.
