Like most places in africa, the place smalls and is dirty, people urinate in the street, there's rubbish not far away and don't even think of eating outside a western hotel unless you like contracting typhoid fever.

The Pyramid is a brutalist pyramid shaped office building that is currently abandoned due to a fire. Definitely the more recognizable building in Abidjan.
