Rob has a 6’4″ Texan working with him for the next few weeks…


Ben is fresh out of college and is here in Benin to learn more about ethnomusicology. He’s a talented musician, speaks French very well and seems at home here in West Africa! He did some village research with Rob last week, has been editing sound recordings and is shadowing Rob when he interviews folk for his thesis work. Nice chap, but don’t take my word for it; his blog is spanking brand new and is well worth a visit. See BEN’S BLOG HERE and enjoy his fresh new perspective on Benin (even if he has used a couple of photos I was going to post on my blog!)

Of course, he doesn’t get to come to Cotonou without the mandatory right of passage, namely the TUK TUK:

Great blog – could it be that I’m somewhat prejudiced? Face it – the tuk tuk is not nearly large enough for the average guy from Waco!
