Old Lome Port

Location - West Coast Africa

This is all that remains of the Old Lome Port these days. Lome still isn't that big a port. It would probably be as big as Ballard Pier in Mumbai. The only real traffic in Lome is of the container ships, which come here in surprisingly large numbers.
As the chap driving me along explained, the main export here is timber that is stuffed in containers.

As he explained, these people cut trees & mint gold. He looked accusingly at me and said " And you know what, all these people, they are Indians?"

Hey if I'm to take collective responsibility, let me have some money too!
