Hello, culture shock! After a smog-filled ride through a maze of lawless traffic – andÂ an unsettlingÂ check of the car’s undercarriage for explosives – I’m ensconced in the five-star Sankara tower high above the povertyÂ andÂ pedestrianÂ mayhem below. It’s a bewildering juxtaposition, as though someone hasÂ tweakedÂ the Photoshop settings to super high-contrast:Â prosperityÂ and poverty are vividly cheek by jowl. To wit, Sankara’s architecturally impressiveÂ rooftop pool-by-day and lounge-by-night. CantileveredÂ out overÂ theÂ city center, it has a groovy glass bottom for the perfect fish-eyed view of the chaos heavingÂ below.
