I was asking a lady how much the average person made in Ivory Coast, I guess it is about 8 dollars per day. I explained, all the hotels in this area are for foreigner only and prices only for foreigners. It is some foreign inflated price and has nothing to do with the price of the country.
I see all the Hotel in the Grand Bassam as double the price that is fare if compared to the rest of the world and same type of country situation. Being I can get mugged if I leave the Hotel at night it is extremely expensive.
