Pictures from Ghana Togo and Benin
Ending the year 2019 and welcoming 2020 I travelled for four weeks in West Africa. It was full of delicious food and colourful festivals. I am so eager to go back!
Accra – Kumasi – Elmira – Cape Coast – Wli
Kpalime – Lome – Togoville
Grand Popo – Ouidah – Abomey – Porto Novo – Cotonou
Some highlights from the region – cities, people, festivals, nature.
One of my main reasons to visit this region was to check out the Voodoo festival in Benin.
Lively cities, colourful markets, and very friendly people.
I tried every dish I could, sampling various preparations of fufu, jollof, beans, meat, and lots of fresh fruit and vegetables.
Atlantic coastline and some interior national parks.
Visiting historical slave forts and learning more about this grim part of human history.
