Progress, or economic standstill?

So much building has happened since our last visit 12 plus years ago. A plethora of new buildings, as well as many of unfinished structures. John tells me that there was an influx of people from Cote D'Ivoire during civil unrest, stimulating a housing boom. Now, with the economic downturn, many of them have gone, leaving unfinished housing. It's affecting everyone, globally. However, I see men still doing the construction all around us. They are the ones covered in cement dust! Rather eerie, their dark skin streaked in white.
