Ouagadougou the nation’s capital or Ouaga, as it’s affectionately dubbed, is a thriving, metropolis, resplendent with dance, live bands and theatre companies.
The town has a busy festival schedule and beautiful handicrafts. Its streets are a lively, dusty mix of concrete and red roads, thousands of mopeds, street-peddlers and exuberant life that more than makes up for the capital’s lack of significant sights.
