Six Bougies

3 years ago

Hi! I'm Kim, a French-American living, working, traveling, and musing in West Africa (Dakar, Senegal, to be exact). I've lived here for close to three years. I blog about the intersection between Africa, design, and culture... and the expat life of course!

Peregrine by Nature

7 years ago

Peregrine is a collection of stories and people that I find interesting. And boredom is a luxury not afforded to us in Africa. This site is born out of a recent decision (not quite my own) to return to the country in which I grew up. If there is such a thing as home on this earth, Senegal and Chicago are mine. But for the most part I believe we are all peregrine, all aliens here.
