CÃīte d'Ivoire - Geography
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Do you like chocolate? Some of the chocolate you have eaten may have come from CÃīte d'Ivoire. Cocoa is one of CÃīte d'Ivoire's biggest crops. CÃīte d'Ivoire is one of the smallest countries in Africa. It is about the size of Germany and is shaped almost like a square. It has rain forests, mountains, and beaches. Its neighbors are Liberia, Guinea, Mali, Burkina Faso, Ghana, and the Atlantic Ocean.
 
2     Over 16 million people live in CÃīte d'Ivoire (the country was originally known in English as Ivory Coast). More than half of the people are very traditional. They are very proud of their country. They welcome the people that come to visit it. There are many reasons the country has been called the Jewel of Africa.
 
3     The weather is warm or hot and dry from November through May. Sometimes very hot, dry, and dusty winds called harmattan winds blow in the northern part of CÃīte d'Ivoire. These winds come from the Sahara Desert. They carry so much dust and sand that it is very hard to see anything! From June through October it is hot and wet. July is the wettest month of all.
