Last weekend I got to experience attaya, a strong, sugary green tea. It was very good and we had it a few more time throughout the week, it definitely has the caffeine you are looking for when you are draping. Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about attaya…link.
I also recently played a game of scrabble in Wolof, the language I am studying here. It was very challenging, but a good exercise! At least I got to use the dictionary.
