I just recently found out that one could have dimples on the laps and I'd been struggling for years to have one on my cheeks 😂😂
Why have I been wasting my time?

La Porte du Non Retour (Point of No Return) is an infamous monument depicting the area where slaves were marched to the boats. Slaves from Togo and Benin would spend their last night here before journeying across the trans-Atlantic. .
.
Benin was the hub of the slave trade and Ouidah was once West Africa’s biggest slave port with an estimated 15 million slaves leaving its ports in chains. Benin was involved in the slave trade for over 200 years and the role of Dahomey kings in the trade is worth noting and condemning. .
.
Ouidah is a history book through and through . There is a slave museum nearby, the Portuguese fort and the 4km slave route, including the tree of forgetfulness, a supposedly magical tree around which slaves were made to walk many times in order to forget the lives they once had . .
.
Ouidah is a must see if you are visiting Benin but please be sure to hire a guide if you don’t speak French or Ewe. The Point of No Return was such a sombre experience; man’s inhumanity to man never fails to amaze me. .

There was so much to learn in Ouidah. Here, a monument to the French and Spanish missionaries who brought Catholicism to Benin in the 1860s sits rather uncomfortably close to the Point of No Return - a slave port. A constant reminder that the slave experience is inextricably linked to the religious one. Huh, life’s many ironies!

#tbt To the annual Voodun Festival in Ouidah. Local artists commissioned an exhibition of statues on the beach. Each figure represented slaves taken from Benin, and the final walk they took on the shores of their homeland of Benin. #neverforget #history #westafricanhistory #beautyinart #africanart #africanartists #bénin #ouidah #ouidahplage #rappelles
