2010-06-01 Assinie, Cote d'Ivoire

Assinie is still famous in France because of the Club Med resort. It gained notoriety because it featured in the movie 'Les Bronzés'. Ten years ago the club was closed because of the political situation in Cote d'Ivoire. the resort is still there. The lawns are mown but the buildings are in a sad state. Another ten years and nature will have recaptured this piece of French 'civilization'.
