The Allocodrome in Abidjan, Ivory Coast. We ordered grilled chicken and fish smothered in a tomato/onion/cucumber vinaigrette, served with attieke and fried plantains (so delicious - hard to beat Ivoirian cuisine). Then these guys delivered a couple bottles of cold beer. They then launched into an animated conversation next to our table that went on for some time, full of laughing and arguing and much gesticulating with their arms. Then she walked by. And it all came to a full and silent halt. January 2013.
