    Back in the country

    Hi guys,

    I'll be back in Abidjan for a crazy weekend (the next one).

    If someone is there, just let me know.

    Bye.

    Abidjan now safe and swining again

    The police have been instructed to stop racketeering cars and tourists. We were stopped a few times but they only checked the drivers' papers. They once extracted a small fine, allegedly for not heeding a STOP signpost. You should not drive during the day with the lights on. That's a sign used by big-shots in case they've been hijacked. My girl was stopped when she drove with her lights on: 15 policemen (or soldiers) suddenly emerged into the middle of the street and stopped her. They assumed the lights on meant "I'm in trouble, help". It's a long shot from before the war, where anyone in uniform only meant trouble. Drivers overall are also instructed not to sop during the night at dark places, even if waved down by what looks like "police" (guys in uniform). The assumption is that if it's an official (authorized) road block, it will be very visible and well-advertised.

    Rue du Canal is a street with SW's at night.

    At the end of Rue du Canal there's another street whose name I forgot. There is the St-Germain, the disco which gets full at week-end. Lots of absolute stunners! Here's their website :

    Abidjan is swinging again. The ratio of girls to males is not as good as in the Cameroons though. On the other hand Abidjan promises to become a real city, complete with venues and supermarket, while Cameroonian cities will remain hopelessly underdeveloped.

    One crappy piece of news: the Ivorians have taken it into their heads to require biometric visas from toursists. I could still get a normal visa through a visa agency. A biometric visa requires you to travel twice to the embassy / consulate!

    Caution on Yellow Fever Vaccine

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...fever-jab.html

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/1435195.stm

    All visitors require a visa. And to get that visa a Yellow Fever vaccination is officially required. With side effects like those above I'd rather take my chances without, if I could get in. Anyone know of a way around the vaccine requirement? Possibly by offering tea money via the land border from Ghana, but that assumes visas are available there.

    Otherwise Côte d'Ivoire sounds great and, in common with Senegal, prostitution is completely legal there.

    What's the deal with taxis? Do they quote fair rates or should I expect to get ripped off?

    What's the going rates for short / long time?

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    They just been through a CIVIL WAR!

    A lot of the girls split to other countries like Ghana, Togo, Benin, Mali, Burkina. They been making their way back the last few months. Also, a lot of the ex-pat johns also split. They're also making their way back slowly.

    So, I can imagine the prices must be lower than normal due to supply and demand!

    Please report!

    Good on you my friend.

    Pretty much it looks like it's a Golden Chance for you to fill in all of the above voids.

    Good luck, and PLEASE report back!

    Sluttiest women in africa?

    I've got some spare time so I'm trawling through Afrointroductions, letting my mind wander. And after considerable research I've concluded Ivory Coast (Cote the'Ivory) seems to have the sluttiest women of any country in africa right now, possibly equating to the highest prostitute content.

    Anyone seen a country with more obvious ho's than Ivory Coast on Afrointroductions dot com?

    There is always someone brave.

    Keeping an eye, battles around but the "war" is still not finished.

    How is the monger scene in Ivory Coast in the mist of the political crises? I plan to spend 3 days in Abijan in April. Any little info would go a long way.

    Thanks
