|Title:||the old capital|
|Location:||grand-bassam, cote d'ivoire|
we said goodbye to tim and robert who were supposed to leave today, and took the bus to grand-bassam, the former capital of cote d'ivoire.
it's a nice and quiet town at the beach. it's buildings, like the ones in st. louis, senegal, are in decay and there is the usual post colonial atmosphere.
on the weekends it's said to be full with tourist from abidjan, but now, during the week, it's a rather sleepy place.
sidonie and i went to have a couple of beers at night and then went to bed.
