During the short week I spent in Togo, I didn't really manage to understand the many mysteries of life and the secrets of society here.

What I saw and experienced was a beautiful country with its own identity, and- especially in the north - great people, that unfortunately have to suffer from an incompetent dictatorship.

My Itinerary

I crossed the Ghanaian border in the hills near Kpalimé and spent a long weekend in Lomé, during which I visited the local markets and beaches.

Then I travelled up north, stopping only in Kara, before heading towards the Togo/Benin border at Nadoba Village, situated in the Tamberma Valley, which is famous for it's fortress-like architecture!

After an unexpected partynight in Nadoba, I crossed the border to Boukoumbe (Benin).

    I've seen this photo so many times rotating and on cover page, itlooked like a painting. So it went for the Sky Burial picture. They were from a reflex and probably non-digital camera, no ? Anyway, they are impressive.
