Banoua Ivory Coast Monday, August 7, 2006 Banoua Ivory Coast
I have been a little confused on the name of this city. I thought I read it as Bonois, however it is spelled Banoua, Ivory Coast. I am more or less about one hour east away from Bassam. I returned from Aboisso to use the internet, now I am waiting for Sunday and Monday a National Holiday to end. It is the Day of Independence I am told of Ivory Coast. I was laughing, I said form France and I still not sure, as this boy did not seem to know. A Holiday and be a Holiday all your life and not know why.
It is smallish city, however a little more friendly than Aboisso, of course it was rainy in Aboisso, does not make for happy spirits. Both are nice and intriguing, however probably boring to most tourist as no obvious tourist attractions, avoid-people ways of travel.
Both Aboisso and Bonoua, Ivory Coast seem like good places to meet the locals, however still a little to large. I am thinking about Ayame.
I am in Banoua, I went East to Aboisso, then returned to Banoua to try to use the internet and send money to myself with WesternUnion.com http://www.westernunion.com
I need more money in CFA to travel to Togo and Benin, in the event there are no ATM machines. I do not want a cash advance at a bank and will avoid this is at all possible; consider it a great way to be robbed.
