  The funeral in Bantancountou
by irisbe

We put our luggage in our ?rooms?. It is the house of the Chief?s brother who will have to take satisfaction with only one room for his family for the time of our staying.
After getting rid of our things, we go to the village central spot to join into the mourning ritual. Isabelle and I are seated amongst the women; Dirk and Wilfried take place amongst the men.
