A typical market day in Burkina Faso.

I’m not one for traveling with busloads of tourists to places everyone else goes, which is why I decided to explore Burkina Faso for two weeks with just four other travelers, a guide and a driver. While the country is not geared toward tourism — the food lacked the variety of some of the other West African countries, and places to stay were few and far between — I wouldn’t have missed it!
