Requirements for Successful Research
1. A sophisticated and well-equipped research vehicle
The Renault 4 - the second most basic car outside of the
(former) Eastern Bloc.
2. Research assistants willing to follow you into the depths of hell sans whining
Pape Sow, Birane Diop and Rokheya Faye (not pictured)
cheerfully endured the caprice of their boss.
3. A technical support team qualified to keep your sensitive research equipment in top working order despite adverse environmental conditions.
Mame Gor Diakhoumpa (in sunglasses) and his team of apprentices, through
herculean effort, refuted the adage "bad tools make bad work"
and kept the research vehicle running like a fine watch.
