  1. Wow, I thought Freetown was an absolute hellhole, but then again when compared to most of West Africa, you can’t be too choosy. I read your blog from West Africa and really admire what ylou are doing by the way.

        to me Abidjan is the most beautiful city in west Africa. it has nice environment
        and beautiful structures and so on.I have been to Accra for 2years also but Accra
        cannot be compared to Abidjan. even though I’m an ivorian and am not standing
        on fact.

  2. Thanks a lot Angela and I am glad you followed my trip. Freetown was not the nicest place I’ve ever been to but you hit the nail on the head when there are way worse places. However, Freetown also had some really great places especially the dynamic and gorgeous beaches. the place was surely frenetic but definitely an experience and certainly worth the trip

  3. I haven’t been to nearly all of the west african cities but I spent a lot of time in Abidjan and enjoyed my time there before I was forced to leave about 9 years ago. I don’t know how it is now but it was lovely back then.

    I was in Dakar between 2008-2009. I felt in love with the country and the Dakarois. Lovely country rich of histry and people there are very warm as they say ” la teranga Senegalaise” I almost start looking for a place to settle down but not lucky enough had to relocate……Dakar is the best. Labelle Dakar. I have to many cities in Africa…Cap Town should be Nber 1 but too dangerous…
