Less than four weeks until I head off a new adventure. This time West Africa.
Whilst I am in Benin it will be National Voodoo day, a religion practiced by 60% of the population. My plan is to attend one of the many festivals here; where the roots of this truly cultural celebration began. Away from the sensationalised films I am keen to see and understand how the locals celebrate the largest religious day in their calendar.
Additionally I am also hoping to learn the skill of retro-running, or in layman terms running backwards. Ghana seems to excel at this, holding the World record of 13.6 seconds for 100m. Perhaps though I need to improve my forward running first….
