Itinerary
Trip 2001
November 22-24 We travel to the lush, equatorial region of the Guinea coast. Yamoussoukro, the capital, lies deep in the African bush. It has the world's most incongruous building - a vast basilica that is higher than Rome's St. Peter basilica and has a dome 3 times larger than St. Paul's dome in London.
November 25-27 We drive south to the coast, exploring tribal areas. Then we enter the modern city of Abidjan which has a sophisticated nightlife and restaurants, much needed after weeks in the African bush.
