The first stop on a long overland journey starting in the Ivory Coast ending up in the republic of Congo. The main stops on this visit included the surroundings of Abidjan, Yamoussoukro - the capitol - as well as the famous old capitol - the Grand Bassam. The old run down village by the sea is well worth visiting. They have applied to become a site listed by UNESCO world heritages, much needed also to get funding, but not yet been accepted. Grand Bassam had a terror attack incident a year ago or so, targeted at a hotel. Many victims were claimed unfortunately.
