Hello Cotonou, Benin!

I’m ashamed to say that I know very little about the city of Cotonou, Benin. From this photo it looks like a slightly cleaner version of Vera on market day:

Still, I’d like to give a big shout out to my (anonymous) friend who lives there and visits my blog from time to time (according to Google Analytics). Hello! Bonjour! Comme çe va?

He takes a position of pride amongst the other 3,435 people who visited this website in the last 30 days and read more than one page!

  1. Cotonou has some true smog over the city from all of the motocycles. However, I went north to Niger and visited many cities. I recommend Natingou, it has a life, a few Peace Corp people. I stayed at great Hostel right behind the big city market that was hilarios and cheap. Take care, more of a Chambre de Passage, but funny place and walking through the market daily made life interesting. Thanks from Andy of HoboTraveler.com in Guatemala Travel Blog and Hotels

  3. Benin was one of the African regions I studied when I was doing my MA in History at he UWI. I am happy to see the development of this area.

  4. I’m from Benin , i left Benin couples of years now , what i still remember, it is a peaceful and politically stable country. the democracy has been showing its proof.In Benin a lot has to be done on many levels .The pollution is becoming a dire problem and this is due to the uncontrollable number of motorcycles known as “Zemidjan” The common problem of unemployment. We do have couple of touristic sites which is not enough as compare to other country in the neighborhood,unfortunately those site as few as they are need some serious improvement to make them more attractive while keeping its original aspects . For instance Ganvie is a great place that need some kind of improvement to meet the 21st century touristic aspects.
