Photographer's Note

Ganvie is a floating village of 30,000 people on the Laguna behind Cotonou. The journey to the shore take 45 minutes in pirogue and you are still 25 km away of Cotonou. Time has another meaning over there !

On the left of the picture, you can see a vegetal fish trap. On the right, you can see the "sail" of the pirogue. I was really impressed when the guide set up a sail from a bedsheet, 3 pieces of wood and 2 ropes. Welcome to Africa !
