👧🏾🇧🇯 Porte du non retour 🇧🇯👧🏾 La Porte du non retour est le lieu d’embarquement d’où sont partis deux millions (des dix millions) des africain-e-s mis en esclavage pendant la Traite Négrière. Situé sur la plage d’Ouidah, ce monument a été réalisé par l’Unesco, en 1995, en mémoire de ces déporté-e-s.

En 2017, je vous rappelle un proverbe béninois : l’esclave appartient à son maître, mais le maître des rêves de l'esclave est l'esclave seul. 
Je vous invite à être maître de vos rêves !

A Porta do Não Retorno é o lugar por onde embarcaram dois milhões de africanos(as) escravizados durante o Tráfico Negreiro. Situada na praia da cidade de Ajudá (Ouidah), este monumento foi criado pela UNESCO, em 1995, em homenagem aos deportados(as). Em 2017, lembro-lhes um provérbio beninense: o escravo pertence ao senhor, mas o senhor dos sonhos do escravo é unicamente o escravo. 
Convido-lhes a ser Senhor(a) de seus sonhos!

🙋🏾🙋🏿‍♂️👧🏾🇧🇯🌞❤️ Chegando à Porta do Não Retorno,  fomos acolhidos pela Micheline. Ela nos contou a história de Ajudá, da vida cotidiana dos beninenses e, sobretudo, ao saber nossos países de origem, com um grande sorriso e olhos emocionados, elas nos disse: sejam bem-vindos em casa, meus filhos !

Esta acolhida calorosa, aqueceu nossos corações, antes de  chegarmos à famosa Porta. 
Ps. Além de criadora de brincos, colares incríveis, ela trabalha com preços imbatíveis para quem deseja comprar tecidos, bolsas com estampas africanas. Quem quiser o contato dela, basta entrar em contato comigo!

Do you remember @pribodunke ???
.
.
She won a trip and joined us on our travel adventure to the Republic of Benin.
~
Here is what she had to say about her travel experience.
.
.
.
“My experience travelling with Aunty Oto was an amazing one and I can't even deny it.
~
Prior to the trip, I read a lot about the place, particularly the drama at Seme Border so I was expecting a lot of time to be wasted at the border as the usual norm. ~
Everything was planned perfectly well that we didn't have to spend so much time or deal with extortion at the Border.
~
My experience in Benin was really interesting. Beginning with the trip to Bab’s dock, I was totally blown away.
~
The highlight of my trip to Benin was my stay at #casadelpapa ~
The room service was top notch and the view of the ocean was magnificent. It gave me time to meditate on God’s creation. Our visit to the Ouidah Museum of History was insightful. Learning about the History of Benin definitely opened my eyes to so many things; slavery in particular, and I'm thankful I wasn't born in that generation.
~

If I get the chance to go back to Benin, I'll go back over and over again and most likely do the same things and stay in the same place.”

What I personally like about Bourian is the way it turns the sad memory of slavery into a joyful culture show. "Yes we went there by force, but we got back stronger"

Ouidah, Benin 🇧🇯 is the spiritual capital of the Vodun (also known as Voodoo) religion, and hosts an annual international Vodun conference. About 17% of the population of Benin, some 1.6 million people, follow Vodun. Vodun cosmology centers around the Vodun spirits and other elements of divine essence that govern the Earth, a hierarchy that range in power from major deities governing the forces of nature and human society to the spirits of individual streams, trees, and rocks, as well as dozens of ethnic vodun, defenders of a certain clan, tribe, or nation. Fête du Vodoun celebration is held annually on January 10 throughout the country but most notably in the city of Ouidah. The festival is filled with singing, dancing and the imbibing of liquor, especially gin. All creation is considered divine and therefore contains the power of the divine. This explains the ubiquitous use of mundane objects in religious ritual. Vodun talismans, called "fetishes", are objects such as statues or dried animal or human parts that are sold for their healing and spiritually rejuvenating properties. 📷 via @exploreinhalelive #ouidah #zangbeto

Ouidah: Benin’s voodoo capital 🇧🇯
Ouidah: Benin’s voodoo capital 🇧🇯
"Let's compare Black history 
To slow internet 
Because it seems like 
The message we always get is: 
Weak signal, unable to connect

The oceans are loading- 
trying to find words to express
Rivers and streams 
can barely imagine how it felt
To receive bodies that could never even become slaves
And turns out, their trauma is still our pain 
It haunts us, summoning fears as deep as the sunset 
making us swear that traveling is not for black folks

Holding us hostage where we don't come from
Blocking us from ever seeing where the world began 
But the truth is to really reconnect 
We need to start by weaving back the net
That intertwines his fro, her locs, her cornrows
That links her Haiti, her Benin,  Ouidah with it's one way door

This diaspora, 
a worldwide web of people of color 
Is still pending
Even if it's dial up
Stories are being shared 
As our martyrs are uncovered." Poetry by @rhymeschemes_

Nature travelling is something I enjoy.  I long for my last trip 😢 to Benin republic, I actually miss it. Planning a weekend  getaway, hopefully it compensates.

Few years ago, I saw a picture of my brother with a snake around his neck. My first thought was what's the big deal having a snake around your neck and I added it to my bucket list. 
Last week I joined @socialprefect @socialprefecttours to explore Ouidah and one of the trip itinerary was to visit the 'temples des python'. On getting to the temple and the snake handler brought out 2 live snakes, I definitely flew back to the tour bus when I saw the snakes, lol.
The brave ones were excited about handling the snakes, took selfies and some were not willing to let go #IhailUna 🙌🙌🙌.
Seeing that no one got hurt, I gave it a try. When the snake was placed on my neck, I FROZE. All I heard were screams of Bunmi relax, smile, pose for the camera, be cool, pythons are not venomous et al (shout out to my cheerleaders, lol), but what was in my head was the anaconda movie.

These beautiful kids were so excited to take photos with us when we got to one of the stops during our historic tour of Ouidah town. Their joy was contagious and we left them with some goodies🤗.

So it's still paining me that I couldn't join @socialprefecttours for the tour last Saturday because I really wanted that shoe from @skechersnigeria but I sha still went. Thanks to Chiamaka @socialprefect the sweet lady for her tips and for suggesting  @bookingcom. It really helped. Dear @diydose thank you for your review and answering my plenty questions. I went with low expectations and they superceded it. The food has improved but I stuck to rice, I don't want stories that touch. The services has really improved but why would I rent adaptor 🔌 for 1k cfa? All the staff members are male. No females in sight. No Wi-Fi in the rooms still except at the beach area, restaurant, bar and the pool area.

@Regranned from @bumz16 -  I had a wonderful tour of Ouidah (pronounced we-dah) with @socialprefect @socialprefecttours in partnership with @skechersnigeria 
Casa del papa resort is such a beautiful place. Our very own (ECOWAS) Mauritius & Seychelles combined. 
Social perfect tours did an incredible job organising the tour. From the moment I booked, there was constant communication to ensure hassle-free trip. The goodies received and hospitality deserves a separate post. Thank you for the excellent service rendered. For someone like me that wants to see more tourist attractions in Nigeria, Africa and the world, you definitely have found a customer 😆😆😆.
To the amazing and brilliant people I met, thanks for making the trip a memorable one, Merci Beaucoup #diversity

@tosin.akinyemiju Thanks for capturing the moments
