Old ladies sit in the sand often in front of their home, the sand at the Grand Bassam beach or coast area east of Abidjan, Ivory Coast has nice sand that does not stick to your body. It is easier to stay cool lying in the sort of rocky texture, however soft sand. A person does not leave the sand dirty, it maybe has been cleaned in the river of all soil particles and deposited here in this small spit of land between the mainland and the ocean.
I gave these boys some Maiz or Popcorn, they are jumping around playing.
This same popcorn delayed my trip, when I ate 4 bags and had to use the toilet the whole day, I wanted to leave.
