Photographer's Note

My last shot of Benin I'll post. It was taken in Dogbo's highschool. I hesitated to post that one, wondering what it could teach about Benin. I found two little things: bike was a quite popular means of transport in Benin, and they particularly like to decorate it with that fringed saddle cover you can see on the right bike.
The other thing is that when you walk by Dogbo (or any other African village I guess), there are dozens of goats and hens in the street, belonging to local farmers. In the highschool it's just the same, explaining why you can see a hen in the left part of the picture.
You can also see classrooms in the background.


Ma dernire photo du Bnin, prise au collge-lyce de Dogbo. J'ai hsit la poster, me demandant ce qu'elle pouvait apprendre sur le Bnin. J'ai trouv deux petites choses: d'abord le vlo est un moyen de transport assez rpandu au Bnin, et ils aiment particulirement les dcorer avec ces housses franges comme sur le vlo de droite.
Deuxime point, dans Dogbo (comme dans tout village africain je suppose), des dizaines de chvres et de poules se balladent dans les rues, appartenant aux agriculteurs qui les laissent parcourir la vile leur gr. Cela explique la poule qu'on peut voir sur la gauche de l'image.
A l'arrire-plan, on peut galement voir des salles de classe.
