There are few foreigners on the back roads in Benin. Our group was quite the spectacle wherever we would go. In the photo above, a group of children on their way to school stopped to watch Anna fix a flat tire. The group reached fifty children (we’d made bets on the final number and were counting) until one of the teachers came and reminded them not to be late for the afternoon’s classes.
In the photo below the crowd that followed us through town and to the river’s edge is visible watching us cross the water in canoes.
