Recent Travel to Burkina Faso

Looking into the possibility of traveling to Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso in a few months and see that there have been some recent travel alerts for areas north of Ouagadougou. Wondering if anyone can give me input on traveling to this country? (We will keep an eye on current events and alerts as well.)

Thank you.

Sapphire,
I'm not sure if you'll get much help on Burkino Faso here, though perhaps someone will come in. Have you tried Thorntree on Lonely Planet or the local forums on TripAdvisor? There may also be more information available in French than English

The nearest we got to Ouagadougou was flying over it on the way between Mali and Ghana. I remember looking down at the red laterite roads. In terms of travel alerts we always check the British Foreign Office which often has a measured view on these things.
