To see where I have been so far, check out my map as I count down the final 93 countries on the road to all 193 UN countries. Burkina Faso is my 109th country.
A short flight from Niamey and I touched down in the capital of Ouagadougou. Hands down, maybe one of the coolest names for a city. My guide Marlon was waiting at the airport with his trusty Land Cruiser. The next 5 days, we would cruise around Burkina Faso, taking in the sights and the people. Highlights included siting on the back of a sacred crocodile, being the only tourist at a national park for safari, and checking out the painted houses of Tiebele. The locals were friendly and hospitable.
