There’s not an awful lot to do in Cotonou at the weekend, so sometimes one has to improvise…


Actually, this photo was taken at the Fondation Zinsou, Cotonou’s best (and only?) art gallery. The gallery is in Ganhi, not far from Notre Dame Cathedral.

Notre Dame Catherdral

Entry is free and the whole place is air-conditioned. Also, there’s a nice (if slightly overpriced) tea room, which does tasty cakes and good tea (even Earl Grey).

There were some interesting photos from Africa and other parts of the world on display when we went…and then there was the dressing up room! By the way, there is one extra person in our family in the photo above – anyone know who it is? Can you identify all five Bakers too??

Incidentally, if you’re looking for things to do in Benin, then I stumbled upon this site, which has some good ideas.

That’s all for now.

I don’t know who it is but she looks pretty.
