Some Voodoo priests use herbs to cure the sick - and possibly to poison enemies. They also sometimes ask for offerings, such as a chicken or a sheep, which is then sacrificed to the divinity, or some alcohol is poured onto the floor. This can happen when asking for help or when you wish has been granted. People seek help on a variety of issues - to be cured of a disease, find a job, complete a business deal, find a spouse or have a child.

After spending one night in Cotonou, the capital of Benin, I decided that it was best to press on towards Nigeria. However, I wanted to go a different direction since I've heard the main border to Nigeria is a zoo. Thus, I headed into Central Benin to a place called Abomey to spend the night. Abomey was once the center of an incredibly powerful and fierce empire in Benin. Today, Abomey holds a really impressive UNESCO world heritage site and some old palaces. Upon arrival to Abomey, I took part in a tour around the old palaces. Tomorrow, I head onward to Nigeria. Stay tuned.

The video covers in 14 minutes the nearly 5 hour city exploration of Cotonou/W-Africa which took place on Nov 11th at the Benin Biennale 2012. Cotonou has faced an incredible development and turned from a coastal village quickly into a capital city, prosperous and abounding. The city rapidly exceeded the borders established by the colonial power and the occidental way of understanding a city. Therefore new experimental ways of capturing Cotonou need to be explored to bring different insight into this place of rapid change and transition. Organized by Benin Connexion and dérive - Society for Urban Research, dérive Connectée tried to connect the cities of Cotonou and Vienna by walking simultaneously on routes that met on certain points like places, bridges or crossings. The walk in Cotonou ...

Rising sea levels due to climate change in the Gulf of Guinea are swallowing up large partions of Benin's coastline. The United Nations says the West African country's coast has retreated by 400 metres in the last 40 years as the waters destroyed many homes there. Environmentalists say studies show the sea levels will keep rising by more than 50 centimetres, which would threaten to destroy the entire commercial capital Cotonou. Jonah Hull reports from Benin, where many are fighting the giant waves. [November 13, 2010]
