Conakry itself does not do Guinea justice : the city is dirty, everything is covered in mold, and there are slumlike habitats pretty much all around, mixed with hotels and appartment buildings. It's depressing to think that a country with so much ressources is so low on the ladder of development. I'd always associated development issues to lack of natural ressources. I guess Guinea is the utmost expression of what bad governance can do to a country otherwise blessed by nature.
At the same time, some aspects of Conakry are endearing : the street sellers are selling random items (as in many other African countries), people play soccer on the roundabouts, and it's not uncommon in the morning to see scenes of domestic life right out on the street.
It's these last small things that always make me fall in love with Africa, all over again.
The local team and the auditors regroup for a team picture (taken by yours beaverly). In the end, the audit process is a collaborative effort, and we got great support from the local team. Yeah team !
L'equipe locale et les auditeurs se retrouvent pour une photo collective (prise par castorement votre). A la fin, le processus d'audit est un effort commun, et on a eu droit a une excellente collaboration de l'equipe locale. Yeee team !
