People watch a man descend into a large former well during a traditional ceremony in the village of Ndande, Senegal. Every year, inhabitants of the village take part in a Sufi Muslim ceremony called Gamou-Ndande. The ceremony combines nights of praying and chanting as well as traditionally animist ceremonies. The well, called Kalom, was the site of historic battles in Senegalese history. Today there is no water in the former well and it is used for ceremonial purposes.
