Journal Entry:
Spent a couple hours in the morning catching up with my journal. Picked up the visas for Ghana and had another excellent cheese burger at the Hamburger House. Visited the Cathédrale St-Paul - conceptually very cool (the church looks like a man with outstretched hands and the cathedral rood is the mans cape) but very ugly in execution. Searched for Internet access - most expensive yet, 10,000 CFA / hour (~$20). Hung out nd read for a bit in the French Cultural center, then walked around Abidjan for a while. Evening was spent plying cards and diner in the bar downstairs and then cards and the remaining tequila in the room.
