Burkina Faso – Through My Lens

The country that is the subject of this week’s ‘Through My Lens’ is the dusty, land locked country in West Africa Burkina Faso. I visited twice, now ten years ago. The cities/towns seemed to have fields or basically wilderness in the middle. It’s a wild sort of place, and ever so hot – most days were around the 40 degrees mark when I was there. And that was the cooler part of the year.

Dusty road Bobo Diolosso.

From the capital of Ouagadougou I went down to Banfora where I took a guided tour of the region including visiting a village, then back to Bobo-Diolosso, Burkina Faso’s second city. The second time I arrived in Ouagadougou again and went north to Ouahigouya on my way to Mali and the Dogon Country. Enjoy!
