Friends told me that going overland into Guinea could easily get me held up by the police for no other reason than they wanted a bribe. So they recommended that I went all the way back to Dakar in Senegal and take a flight to Conakry.
They also said that they didn’t really like the country. Would I have a different experience?
I met some of the locals, and in this first of two episodes from Conakry, you can meet the first one. It’s Tim, a French expat who likes the country a lot.
