Benin has a very strong relationship with Bahia State, in Brazil. I like the orishas, Mother Oshum, Yemandja It's a place I would love to go, it's the Mother Land. In Salvador we have Benin House, and in Abomey there are Bahia House. I have Angelique Kidjo albuns. Benin is cool. Many axé to Benin.

Cotonou is more famous for it's trade, Porto Norvo is the capital. Cotonou is like a Nigerian shopping mall in Benin, you can buy all sorts of cheap stuff and the black market is immense, the cheapness of goods reminds me of Manila Philipines
