Work Trip (part 2)

Here's the second set of pictures from my work trip last week to Yamoussoukro. I only have one more set of pictures to show and then I will be back to my regular outfit pictures. These were taken on a trip to visit the Basilique Notre-Dame de la Paix. I've been to my share of churches around Europe and never expected to see something like this in West Africa. I was blown away buy the size and artistry in this beautiful cathedral. Another amazing this was the quietness I experienced. Usually when visiting big cathedrals, there are long lines and crowds and non-stop camera flashing. Well on my tour there were only six of us and the guide really took his time to explain everything and we also had time to explore on our own. I have to say this was probably one of my favorite tourist trips I've taken while I've been in Cote d'Ivoire.
