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.

Ivory Coast Skin Problems

Ivory Coast Skin Problems



This boy and the whole village of Grand Bassam the Carte France side seem to put this cream on their faces. I hear it is because of bad water that irritates their faces, but not sure.



He has no problem joking and laughing.

Looks like a problem, but no, it seems to be the local custom to just lay down in the sand and take a nap. The world likes to sleep on top of the roof, here in the sand streets.

Probably all hand or home made.

The normal families here cook with wood or charcoal, then sometimes propane tanks.
