Burkina Faso

Wedged between countries twice to thrice its size, finding landlocked Burkina Faso on a map of Africa can be challenging. Geographically, Burkina Faso is a mash-up of rolling green countrysides.

Called “Burkinabè”, residents of Burkina Faso number roughly 15 million, and are mostly french-speaking. It’s vowel-heavy capital city Ouagadougou hosts an International Arts and Craft Fair every year.

Matador plans on covering more aspects of Burkina Faso – culture, lifestyle, politics, food, language, people, travel within the country – and we’re always open to submissions.
