Cotonou Shore Excursion: Ouidah Voodoo City

Ouidah, conquered by the Dahomey army in the XVIII cent and transformed into a terminal for the slaves trade. Today the laid back attitude of the locals mixes with the thunder of the distant waves on the beach and the rhythm of the drums creates an atmosphere outside of time, very well described by Bruce Chatwin in his book, "The Vice-Roi of Ouidah".
