Northern Benin

West Africa

June 2003


Benin is the center of the map, capital city Cotonou




A typical grouping of buildings in the north of Benin.  This group included a bar where we ordered a beer and peanuts (below).


The outdoor restaurant at the center of the above buildings.  The dirt as a floor, and the abandoned, decaying structures in the background, are common.


The countryside in northern Benin.  We drove into Benin from Togo to speak with a gathering of school teachers who were assembled from the northern region.   We invited them to our Institute On World Problems seminar in Kara, Togo, later that month (June 2003).
