I did a 2 weeks trip in the southern parts of the country, because there you can find the most interesting places to visit and it’s safer than the north.Burkina Faso has the most unique landscapes but this country has hit the news after my visit declaring a state of emergency in the north following extremist terrorist attacks.
Apart of the political situation Burkina Faso is one of West Africa’s hidden jewels, and i loved my trip.It’s one of the world’s poorest countries, but that doesn’t stop the Burkinabes walking with pride. Some of the friendliest faces i saw in the streets of Burkina Faso’s villages and towns. Dancing is a favourite national pastime and centuries-old traditions are part of everyday life. I saw some wildlife aswell such as hippos , beautiful nature with waterfalls, and i love to explore the local markets.
