Arriving in Banfora in the dark, I negotiated for a moto-trike to take me to Hotel de la Comoe, having stayed here before on several occasions I decided to return for a quiet few days. There wasn't anyone else staying here, I had a choice of several rooms at 6,500CFA but in the dark I couldn't get my bearings around its lovely courtyard. The owner remembered me when he came out of his room and I was happy to have returned. After a shower in a terrible bathroom with a loo that didn't flush & hadn't been cleaned in ages, I went out to a maquis a little further down the dusty road. Wonderful maquis that did the most incredible goat brochettes, great staff that were very helpful; I had my dinner and wandered back for a much needed sleep.
|Banfora was looking remarkably abandoned!|
|A totally changed McDonald's compared to my previous trips: |
|Butterfly chrysalis's with onions|
|Thankfully I discovered the wonderful patisserie on my final day in Banfora!|
