Crossing the country overland from Togo onwards to Nigeria we managed to visit Cotonou, Ganvié and Porto Novo during our stay. A mixture of historical sites and the famous floating villages. We stayed at the Haie Vive Guesthouse in Cotonou. A place with atmosphere in a safe neighborhood of town. Not many tourists come to Benin today, as goes for the rest of West-Africa as well. People had mixed feelings about us taking photographs.
