I have heard a variety of music since my arrival in the Ivory Coast, but none have stuck in my head like this one. “La Sauce” by Reniss (from Cameroon) is not only a very catchy song, but the phrase “le piment dans la sauce” (aka. the chili in the sauce) is one I have found to be so true to my experience with food here. They eat chili with absolutely everything, and my colleague even claims she can’t eat (or heavily dislikes) a meal without it! On the other hand, I have a very low tolerance to spice, so I enjoy my food accompanied by a big bottle of water.
But back to the music: press play, turn the volume up, and enjoy a few African vibes on this fine Saturday x
