TBT – flying from Man to Abidjan with Air Côte d’ivoire

Hello Thursday, today I’d like to throwback to the trip from Man to Abidjan. You can for sure take a long distance bus, but after many tiring bus rides, I decided to fly back to Abidjan, seems like a easier way to travel.

The picture above was taken in Man, a restaurant near the market.

Very typical Ivorien lunch, rice and grilled chicken. except the rice is “Cantonese style”, it tastes good especially with the local spicy sauce (which was quite spicy even for me), kinda different than the real Cantonese rice though haha.

Did I mention before, waiting for food can be long in West Africa? I had so much time for selfie, making Steem drafts, editing videos and people watching. Normally after editing one vlog and writing one post, food was still not there. But in other words, travelling in those kinda places is also slow but relaxing, you never need to worry no time for Steem haha.

Taken from my people-watching time, what was that exactly, I forgot to ask them lol.

Airport in Man is so small that everything is manual, even boarding pass was handwrite.

Very small flight to Abidjan. Was also the only flight within the region that I took during the trip!

Trams 🚃

I love trams, how about you?

I took a lot of tram photos wherever I go. Here are a couple of them I’d like to share with you. Sometimes I hope steem came earlier so that I can remember taking more photos.

Most of the photos are taken in Eastern Europe I believe, they use trams a lot! Of course except for the cutest ones were from Portugal and the last one is in Hong Kong 🙂

The West African church specially for kids

Hey, have you ever seen churches specially for kids? In Côte d’Ivoire I saw a few. Apparently it’s common there, kids learn (mostly) how to dance in the church, so that later they can dance in the church.

I always think churches in Africa are much more interesting than those in Europe. Those in Europe seem a bit doring, all the mass seems so serious to me, maybe because I don’t have religion. But those in Africa are so festive, people dress up in colors and dance along the mass. It feels more like a party.

Church is simple, made of bamboo.

This girl wants to be in the picture with me. I felt so glad whenever people want to take pictures with me in Africa. ^^

Now I understand why most Africans can dance so well, they learn it from the church since young.

So that later they can dance like this, awesome, isn’t it?

Why don’t we all do that all over the world!

Have a good weekend!

lonely planet

Recycling some old pictures just for once. Think they might look good when putting together.

Funny thing is that I’m actually more of a city person than nature person, I prefer city trips and always love those big cities, especially Asian big cities, such as Tokyo, Seoul, HK, Bangkok etc. Surprisingly, still can find some photos take in the nature haha.

Can you tell where those pictures were taken? Some of them are easier to recognize than others.

以前我喜欢拍这张人很小的照片,哈哈哈,显得风景很大。最近也不知道发什么就偶尔来回收一下旧照片吧,

好像这些图组合起来看还不错,猜猜都在哪儿拍的吧,其实挺好猜。

Have a good day!

Steem on!
