the city scape of Ouagadougou with lots of high rise block type buildings

Sometime ago I travelled to Burkina Faso for work. This is a description of what happened and how I saw the trip.

Originally a 4-koma or four panel manga series well known to be the go-to format for comedy. ‘Tomo-Chan is a Girl’ tells the story of Tomo Aizawa. A tomboyish red head who has just declared her love to long-time friend Junichiro Kubota.. who just laughs it off as if she was playing with him like a good old chum.
