Previously Upper Volta. Ex French colony. Renowned for its soldiers – lots of solid guys walking around. Road trip from Ouagadougou (said ‘Waga dou gou’) to Tiebele and the magnificent Cour Royale. Ended up staying on the roof top of a prince of this 500 year old village. Wild night out on $5 a 40 ounce bottles of rum then a wonderful tour. The womenfolk paint the houses . By far the most authentic visit – the shower stall walls were only 4.5 feet hight – no electricity – so showering in pitch black 4 meters from 3 women making my dinner with my top half sticking out, under the stars.
