Women of Benin West Africa. As seen by Netiva Caftori 2004. First impressions. Colorful bombas and boubous, all traditional dress. Babies on back. A load on the head. Beautiful balanced walk. Feeling mostly good about their looks. Cooking and selling along the route.

My own story:
Life expectancy = 50
Bend back to do laundry or clean
No garbage cans
Life happens mostly in interior court yards
No running toilets most times
No paved roads: Hens, goats, and pigs run free
Cooking on a small charcoal stove
Mostly no refrigeration, no electricity
Zem, taxi or foot transportationFamily life
Hair dressers/ Manicurists
Lawyers or jurists
Most people still practice voodoo which is not just a religion but a culture and a way of life.
Old secrets though are dying with an aging population of wise men. Women are left out, though they do consult the féticheur.
