Traditional village visit, Togo

Last week on Monday Tonton invited us to the village he originates from. This was both a privilege and an honour: he showed us the town he grew up in, the house of his father, the local market, he took us to meet the village chief and many of the village people and introduced us to his family who treated us to some delicious local specialties. Thank you Tonton, that was an amazing experience.

    Wat een bijzondere ervaringen hebben jullie toch. Elke dag weer opnieuw!
    Heel leuk om zo alles te zien en een klein beetje mee te reizen.
    Prachtige foto’s ook. En wat een hartelijkheid komen jullie overal tegen.
    Daar kunnen wij hier in Nederland heel wat van leren.
