high school kids posing in their uniform.
Boys normally were Kaki pants and shirt. White shirt and black tie, with blue pants are for special occasion.
For girls, it was always a white top and a blue skirt. I love the special occasion days. We all looked like little CEOs... lol

People don't sleep in Abidjan. Every night is party night. You would not believe it. The new dance, couper/Decaler, has taken africa by storm.
And Drogba is the new cherif in town.

The new US embacy. It was inaugurated in 2004. It's the biggest and the most sophisticated US embacy in Africa and probably in the world. It's slated to be the eyes and ears of the US on the West Coast of Africa, and probably all over the continent.

Hotel for Members of parlement in Yamoussokro. Completed in January 2006.
Under Construction, the new National Assembly, and Presidential palace. All politics is moving to Yamoussokro. Abidjan will remain the Commercial Capital.


Hotel President in Yamoussokro. So much open space

Abidjan is the largest city and former capital of Côte d'Ivoire. It is the commercial and banking center of Côte d'Ivoire as well as the de facto capital. (Yamoussoukro is the official capital.) It stands in Ébrié Lagoon on several converging peninsulas and islands, connected by bridges. There are an estimated 4 to 5 million inhabitants in the metropolitan area. The city is a study in contrasts. On one hand the city is hot. On the other hand, Abidjan is referred to as the "Paris of West Africa" because of its parks, broad boulevards, universities, exotic fashions and museums. Neighborhoods include Cocody, an upscale residential area located east of the modern business district, and Treichville, located southward on Petit-Bassam Island, with its busy traditional market. Banco National Park lies north of the city. Abidjan harbors numerous government departments. It is also the hub of the national road system and the terminus of the Abidjan-Niger Railway, which extends northward into Burkina Faso.
