Pictures from Africa

Sally and I lived in Abidjan, Ivory Coast for two years and ran a guesthouse. It was a wonderful time and we loved our life there. Unfortunately, a civil war chased us away.

However, for the first time on Google Earth, I found a 'higher' res picture of Abidjan where you can actually see our house and guesthouse. They are circled in the picture and our house is the lower of the two buildings in the red circle. The building to the east is Polyclinique Avicennes, a nice little Lebanese/French hospital.

Anyway, we thought it was really great to see the old homestead. Hope you like it, too.

I'm not sure from this photo, but I don't think that house is within the 1600 square foot regulations.

Well, it included a huge covered front porch (my expense) and a big covered car port. (Not to mention the covered pool and hot tub) Don't judge by the roofline; it was about 1400.
