Country:  Côte d’Ivoire
City:  Abijan

Côte d’Ivoire is a West African Francophone country known for its hospitality. It is also known as the first cocoa producer in the world. Abidjan, the biggest city, and also the economic capital, with approximately 5 million people, is located on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. It is just a couple of minutes away from Grand Bassam, a historic city with famous beaches where foreign workers spend most of their weekends. Abidjan has one of the largest expatriate communities in West Africa contributing to the dynamism of the city. Some professions, including teaching, have flexible working hours, which gives time for research, or other activities. Visitors must be prepared to work in a more paper-based environment than electronic. Major institutions have limited connectivity. There are two main seasons: a heavy rainy season and a very dry/hot season. It usually rains from April through July, and is dry from November to March. The cool season ranges between 22 and 27 degrees Celsius and the hot season between 28 and 40 degrees. On the weekends, one can enjoy beautiful beaches and restaurants and other night life or cultural activities.
