Western Africa (northern section): Non-Portraits
Challenge has finished
As we move (roughly) south thru Africa, the last week's and this week's challenge will cover the following LONG list of countries:  Gambia;  Senegal;  Guinea Bissau;  Guinea;  Sierra Leone;  Liberia;  Cote d'Ivory;  Burkina Faso;  Ghana;  Togo;  Benin; and  Nigeria. It is my sense that very few people have been to many/all of these countries, so I am uncertain as to if we'll hit the 35-entry maximum. If we do, then I'll probably add more spaces, so everyone who wants can enter. Entrants are required to (1) vote for each other entry, (2) read the comments (if any) below this challenge, in case I or other entrants post with Rules questions or clarifications, and (3) follow each of the challenge rules...including voting WITHIN THE FIRST SIX DAYS of the challenge.
