Visiting Belgium after Senegal: Will I need Yellow Fever Certification?

Soon, I'll be going to Dakar for <48 hours, followed by a few days in Belgium, before returning to the US. I've completely flaked on travel vaccinations, and the trip is getting close. I'm current on the more standard immunizations. I don't think that Belgium requires a yellow fever certificate, but I'm not completely sure. Any suggestions?

Who is the Senegalese musician in the video in the Field Museum?

When I was on vacation in Chicago last year I stopped by the Field Museum and happened to catch a video in the Senegal exhibit of a musician playing and singing a song that I thought was really beautiful. I recall that he was playing the kora and that the lyrics pertained to a shaman or similar person. I have tried looking on the Field Museum website and sending them an email but no dice so far. Does anyone know who is in the video and/or the name of the song?

African mangos in DC

The mangos I ate in West Africa had a powerfully piney overtone, a scent like cotton candy mixed with turpentine. None of the blandly sweet mangos I've eaten in the US have even come close to that incredible flavor. Is there anywhere in the DC area I can find those pungent African mangos?   [more inside]
