Much of the information on the city pages was originally compiled by Angela Carpenter, a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer from Burkina, and is now updated by current Burkina PCVs.

I'm guessing Angela was If so, my hat's off to her for the great, lively writing! --(WT-en) Peter Talk 23:20, 21 February 2010 (EST)

Get In vs Get Around[edit]

It appears to me that the "Get In / By Car" section should rather be put in the "Get Around / By Car" section. Also, the "Get Around" section seems to relate more to "Get Out" than to "Get Around".

Since I really have no idea what to write here, I won't even start messing around, and will leave that to more competent people. But I would very much like for someone to write a "Get In / By Car" section. Since that's what I need.

Is a Carnet de Passage needed?[edit]

Could someone confirm (and include in the article under "Get In / By Car" section) whether you need a Carnet de Passage in order to bring your car into Burkina Faso? Wikipedia says it is helpful, but not required. ANd also, what do you need (to do) if you do not have a carnet? I do feel that it is a rather important information to have if you're planning on entering Burkina Faso by car.


Given its size and population, I think Burkina Faso should have about 4–5 regions. Going by this map, I'll propose:

I'm basing these divisions mostly on the following maps: [1],[2],[3],[4], as well as numerous Wikipedia articles. Admitting my very limited knowledge of the country, if I were to divide further, it would probably be to subdivide either the Southwestern region or Central region I have defined above (or a combination of the two).

Do these look good? --(WT-en) Peter Talk 15:00, 12 February 2010 (EST)

Looks like no comments await, so I have plunged. --(WT-en) Peter Talk 23:02, 21 February 2010 (EST)
The colors are wrong on the map. --(WT-en) globe-trotter 09:39, 4 August 2011 (EDT)
Or perhaps wrong in the regionlist table? I have changed the regionlist colours to match to the map.--(WT-en) Burmesedays 09:56, 4 August 2011 (EDT)
I didn't even think of that :P. Thanks. --(WT-en) globe-trotter 13:25, 4 August 2011 (EDT)
