Benin and Togo are small adjacent countries in
the southernmost part of West Africa, on the coastline with the South
Atlantic Ocean. The country is made up of mostly native tribes who
practice various rituals that include voodoo, fetishes and dances with
masks that are usually symbolic representations of daily life.
Benin is also home of the main port where slaves were transported to
Europe and the Americas. All that's left to memorialize this place
is a few modest monuments (shown below).
