Tour du Faso | burkina #8

While sipping a cola in a restaurant in Fada a big delegation of the Tour du Faso, the big African cycling event, stopped by. Abdoul Aziz Nikiema sat down and had a big bowl of rice with tomato sauce. I approached him and asked, with my limited french, if I can photograph him, which he gladly agreed to. It turns out, he just won the maillot jaune and two days later he would be the overall champion of the race. This was quite a fortunate bottle of cola for me…
