Raleigh, North Carolina and
Yamoussoukro, Ivory Coast
Yamoussoukro in Africa is hot dry with very few rainy days. On the other hand, North Carolina has Sub-Tropical climate. Both of the cities are major producers of plants. North Carolina produces tobacco and Yamoussoukro produces a lot of cocoa beans. The two cities have a non-polluting housing, Raleigh has modular homes and Yamoussoukro has mud brick houses.
Both of the cities have few but major problems. Some of the problems faced by Raleigh crimes, they are 15th in the U.S.A. for crimes. Ivory Coast though, is a victim of this; genocide killed already 400 innocent people. One problem is striking both countries, unemployment.
Few of the many, many differences between my two cities are the numerous citizens in poverty. 0.2% of people have internet and 6% have television. There houses are even made of dry mud.
There are few similarities of the American and African cities. They are both on a coastal beach. Also they both have mountains on the other side of the state or country. Both of their civil wars lasted about 4 years long.
Both are major prodders of plants and have non-polluting homes. The African city is hot and dry yet the American city is cold and sometimes wet. I hope that in Africa the genocide will stop completely or it might get way out of hand.
