"Abidjan, Côte D'Ivoire | December 13, 2015
A deranged Christmas guignol - or clown - greets shoppers at an upscale shopping mall in Abidjan. I've only been here a few days working #onassignment on a separate story, but affluent Africa is an intriguing subject. The shoppers at the mall not only represented an educated elite, but other cultures that had been transplanted here during colonial times.
Obviously French culture and language is a unifying force here, but it's really interesting to see the Ivorian and Lebanese cultures swirl together as well.
