It was nice , very warm and the people were very friendly. The atmosphere was so magical that it didn't feel like I was in Africa, not that there is anything wrong with Africa, it just felt our of this continent. The environment is very clean. Everything is by the water, very breezy and beachy. I also got to see the famous African renaissance monument which is simply grand.
