(The Fanicos)Doing the Laundry in Adjamé
We are "dumped" in the middle of a highway in Adjamé neighborhood, located north of Abidjan flourishing in authentic culture and economic center of the Ivory Coast. The 4x4 did not break down but simply ran out of fuel. As it would be a while before they come to our aid we decided to pull off the road and explore the surroundings. We are in a suburb, a former fishing village that has been swallowed up by the brutal Abidjan growth. Poverty and misery is constant in these marginal areas, so much so that the inhabitants of these disadvantaged áreas engage in trades as strange as that carried out by the so-called fanicos.
