Côte d'Ivoire a Paris in the Afternoon.

After a fabulous lunch at a local Persian Cafe, it was off to the Ivory Coast of Africa (in Paris) with a friend.

Côte d'Ivoire in Paris, is an exhibition at La Bourse de Commerce sponsored by the Paris Chamber of Commerce to celebrate the 50th Independence Anniversary of the Ivory Coast with the purpose of stimulating interest in the Ivory Coast economy.

It was as if we just stepped off the ship at Port Autonome d'Abidjan (the largest shipping port in West Africa) to experience our adventure.

The wonderful aroma of West African food filled the air while warm smiles from African presenters and vendors greeted us. I wanted to eat lunch...again.

La Bourse de Commerce building has an interesting history of its own (click above), but we are here for the exhibit.

On the way to Ivory Coast, West Africa.

Friendly Beautiful People.

Beautiful Cloth and Clothing Vendors.

The Jewelry. I want it all!

Today, we experienced a brief visit to the Ivory Coast of Africa in Paris. Each day I ask myself if it can possibly get any better, and each day I am amazed to learn and experience even more!
