Ouagadougou (Burkina-Faso - BF): In the land of upright Men

The fifth stage and first African date takes place in Ouagadougou. In a context mainly perceived as insecure and alarmist, Saype and his team lived a diametrically opposite experience. Burkina Faso is the “country of upright men” and of Thomas Sankara. The country's culture is currently under threat, but it has so much to offer the rest of the world. Saype wanted to make an impression and highlight the monument to national heroes. It is then at the foot of this building celebrating independence, the republic, the revolution and democracy that this stage takes shape.
