Visiting Algeria – My Country #174/196

Just arrived in my 174th country worldwide, and 35th in Africa. I’ve waited a long time to come to this country because of the love I have for Morroco, which I expected many similarities.

Expectations were met at arrival, but still many differences are obvious. It is definitely not as opened as Morocco and tourism seem reserved for Algerian expats. That said, it seems very welcoming thought! The city of Oran so far is really well developed, having a nice French Riviera style boardwalk, as well as a very modern tramway.

My plan was to arrive in Oran, in the West of the country, considered the most lively city in North Africa, and to fly out from Constantine, in the other extremity on the East side of Algeria. This way I will cross the country, staying around the Mediterranean Coast and focus on the most populated areas. I would have loved to go down in the desert which is praised as one of the most scenic areas of the Sahara, but being in mid summer in August, in the worst temperatures of the year where the thermometer reaches 45 degrees, it was unrealistic.

After two days I already love the place, thanks to my local friend Ilyes who is receiving me here in Oran. His generously is incredible and I can’t thank him enough for the warm reception he has given me. People are extremely nice here, friendly and very helpful. The lack of tourism seems to attract nice words when I mention I’m from Quebec.
