Abstract

A city in movement that is constantly in the midst of creating itself. Almost suffocating, it seemingly has lost its lungs despite its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, and green spaces are very rare. (Felwine Sarr, 2019) The sand on the beach was alive and used to groan when we walked on it. Now it is not like this. The sand is dead because there is so much rubbish, pollution and waste water that is dumped in the bay that it is now dead (Abdoulaye Diouf, Thiaroye sul mer, Dakar, Senegal )
