Cotonou was noones favorite city. Streets were much more busy than Togos biggest city Lomé and options for camping were almost non existent. The city center was a huge roundabout with a red star and monument in the middle.
The cool thing though was the super cheap motorcycle taxis that were practically everywhere and the biggest market in West Africa called the Dantokpa Market. Here there was a animist/voodoo section which felt much more authentic than the one outside of Lomé. Even though it was smaller it had much more stuff like leaoppard feet, ape bodies, elephant head and other stuff that the government has forbidden long time ago. At the market we also found some good fabric that we will use to make tailor made suits once we get to Nigeria or Cameroon.
