Photographer's Note

The 4 km long dirtroad from Ouidah to the coast is called the slaveroad because of the thousands of slaves that were deported from Ouidah that was under control of the kingdom of Dahomey, a legendary and very cruel African state with an army of feerful Amazones, to the coast where the European boats (Portuguese, Dutch, French and English) were waiting to transport them to their colonies in the New World.
Along the road several statues with Voudoun symbols are erected.
