There's not much to see in Abidjan. We started at Saint Paul's Cathedral, the second largest Catholic Church in Africa-
It was built from 1980-1985, blessed by John Paul II and holds 3500 people plus another 1500 can stand-
The stained glass is okay but nothing like in older buildings. The faces look like something out of Monty Python-
There are also lots of mosaics-
Outside there was some kind of convention or revival with lots of singing and speeches-
Next door and throughout the whole downtown was a political rally for the RHDP Party which is presently in power. The next election is in 2020-
People wear clothing made from fabric with the former and current president's faces. So weird-
Imagine if we walked around with Justin's face all over our clothes! Gross!
Lunch was at Burger King where two full meal deals cost $26! I had an immediate stomach ache after eating. I forgot fast food does that to me. I guess I don't eat enough of it and luckily it doesn't last long-
Another "highlight" in Lying Planet is La Pyramide, apparently a "noteworthy" building. That's stooping pretty low-
We tried to visit the Musée des Civilisations but it was closed so after a visit to Decathlon, a well priced sporting goods store, we went to a North American style mall with cool window displays-
and a supermarket. Back at camp, for supper we had gambas- gigantic shrimp that were cooked to perfection.
I'm loving the AC in my room but the tv not so much. It's either religious preaching channels, unprofessional so-African music videos or soccer games. Tomorrow I'll check out Grand Bassam.
