So we made it to Dakar safe and sound.  I'm brushing up on my French which I haven't used so much since my days with CBSA and the Canadian Federal Governement.  The WCO per usual kick off the largest customs event of the year in fantastic fashion.  We've heard Keynote speeches from Korean Customs and Sengalese Customs followed by interesting sessions on interconnectivity and modern IT solutions, and another on communication, social media and Customs.
