i will need to prove that i'm staying in a hotel in cote d'ivoire in order to obtain a visa extension. i guess that, in order to avoid further complications, it better be a good hotel.
reason enough to treat myself to a stay at abidjans novotel for a night...
i got some curious looks, when i passed the swimming pool in my motorcycle outfit. 'paris - dakar?' i heard some people whispering... (is geography that difficult?).
anyhow, i enjoyd the luxury of the day, but was very disappointed by the hotels cuisine. the steack had the tendernes of secondhand chewing gum. i had it replaced by a chicken which was half frozen inside and tasted like fish... i felt sorry for the service personel, as they were very friendly and professional.
i eat the french fries, left the chicken and left the hotel in order to eat in a maquis, a little, basic roadside restaurant. the chicken there was excellent and cost 1/10 of the price...
